Kylie's very belated birthday card

I made this card using this sketch by Mary Jo. Much the same as this card but I do like this one much better. The dp is Lilac Avenue with the c/s from SU. I love the sprinkles from Annabelle, they are gorgeous. Flowers, pearls, lace etc from my stash. Both the girl and the sentiment stamps are by Stamp It. Kylie has now received the card and says she loves it.
It's not raining so much here now. We've had around 8 or so inches here in the last few days. Very wet.

Today 26th January, is Australia Day, the day that the First Fleet landed at Sydney Cove. Nowadays it's a day to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian.
So hope everyone is enjoying their day.
Take care,

I like this one better too Leigh. Stunning colours and papers, gorgeous flowers and what a wonderful image, even though she does make me feel cold as we're inches deep in snow and minus temperatures.
