Afternoon all from a very snowy Derbyshire. This is a card I made for my little next door neighbour. The paper is from Dovecraft 'Birthday' pack. The image was coloured using sparkly watercolours, the number 3 is a peel off which has been coloured with permanent marker. The little tag is from a sheet of words from The Range, held in place with a little pink ribbon. I hope you like it?
