Turquoise Birthdaycard

Tonight I have a birthdaycard to show you.
The last days I've felt really sick; sneezing, coughing, fever, even my ears have hurt - I've never felt pain in the ears before! So - I've used far more time making this card than I usually do, just managed a few minutes every now and then... But, now it's finished, and here it is :)
I used lovely papers from Magnolia in a kind of blue-greenish tone, very close to turquiose I'd think. I've tried to colour Tildas dress in a colour close to the papers, I used ProMarkers for the colouring.
I used Spellbinders Labels Ten for the shape of the card, and folded it "the easel-way" - I always come back to that folding.
I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on one of the panels. The small stars are punched out, then painted with a glitterpaint. After the paint had dried I distressed the edges, like I did to all edges of the panels as well.
The flowers and leaves are from Magnolia. I sprayed the flowers with Glimmermist, and the leaves have got a little paint on them.
I also put on some pearlstrings along with the roses.
Beneath the Tilda-panel i put a doohickey-tag, to give a little extra space to write a friendly greeting.
Inside the card I used the same Spellbinders-die to make the greetingpanel, one of the smaller ones. I glued down some halfbeads onto this panel, both for decoration and to keep the easelcard standing up.
Now, I'll shut up, stop writing, and rather show two more pictures of the card:
close-up of Tilda. I'm quite pleased with the colouring on her dress :D
