Happy Birthday Card

Hi everyone, hope your all having a good week so far.
A few weeks ago Jan the owner of Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Challenges asked me if I would be interested in make a sample card for one of their challenges. I said yes and she said she will let me know what card to make.
Sadly I didn’t received her e-mail telling me, I must make a Thank you card with autumn colours (I have some e-mail problems) and I didn’t had a card ready!
So Jan said I could make a card for this weeks challenge and the theme is “for the girls”! 
So here is my card:
I really love the paper and flowers!
I made this card for my friend’s sister whose birthday is coming up.
She is a very sweet girl and this stamp reminds me of her!
I used a Whiff Of Joy Stamp called: Fall Willow holding Baby Turkey
If you like it check out the Whiff of Joy shop, this stamp is on special!
I coloured her with the following Promarkers: (so by the way, I got 9 new Promarkers! So now I have new hair colours!)
Apricot and Spice – for the girl’s hair
Blush and Dusky Pink – for her skin
Lilac – for her top
Rose Pink – for the girl’s apron
Maroon – for her pants
Terracotta – for her shoes and the bird’s feet and feathers
Pastel Yellow – for the bird’s skin
Cool Grey 1 – for around the stamp (to make it look like shadow)
In the top left corner, I put three flowers and six pearl pins

The flowers from a different ankle. I asked my dad to take the pictures. (My dad takes stunning pictures!)

In the bottom right corner, I stuck four pink flowers and five pearl pins.
Another stunning picture taken by my dad!

My mother bought me a heart puncher to make a pattern, which I used here.
Then I add ribbon and lace at the bottom of the strip and a pretty bow that my mother made.
