A Rainy Happy Birthday!

Morning all - today is my first time posting for The Paper Nest Dolls
Im so excited to be a be part of this amazing journey with Christine and the team! 

Yesterday as some of you know, was my little girls 3rd Birthday - I know I can't believe that she is now three - it only feels like yesterday that I was announcing her arrival!!! 

When I was asked to join The Paper Nest Dolls - I saw this image and fell in love!!! 
Strait away it hit me to use for Nancy's Birthday - I could think of no better image than 'Rainy Day Friends' available here from the store :) - they remind me of my girls (when they are getting along!).  

So this is the card I have made for my 'big girl' to give to her sister!

I coloured the image to look like them (I have a very blond and a very brunette!) and I tried to include their favourite colours in it as well (Miss A loves purple and Miss N loves pink!) I did it just so it was a bit more personal!

The image was coloured with copics 

The papers, ribbon and charms were from my stash.  
The beautiful flowers are from a good friend of mine and you can get some for yourself from Petal Lu! They are simply amazing to work with!

Well I hope you like my card I would like too enter this creation into the following challenges;
