Birthday Pansies

I liked the other Pansy card so much, I made another for my good friend Val, for her 65th birthday. Hope you had a brill day Val!!!
I made this over a week ago, but couldn't show it until she received it.
Coloured with Copics and mounted on Bazzil CS with SU paper across the lower half.
I scored the Bazzil to give the top half a bit of texture.
This card also qualifies for the Copic Creations challenge..Botanicals.
I know I've entered the blue Pansies, but I like this one too.

Well, I'm off to Derby tomorrow to meet up with friends for a nattering and crafting day.
We haven't seen each other since we went away the 1st week of June!!
Pam, my best mate, has had major health problems and is only now fit enough to take on a longish journey. It takes us approx 1½hrs to drive there, but it's SO worth it!
The car could practically get there on autopilot the amount of times we've been! LOL

Well, I'd better get my hold-all packed, or I'll be panicking in the morning!

Thanks for your visit. You know I appreciate it! ;0)

Hey Viv, I've been meaning to tell you for a while now that you have the cutest background for your blog:)
I swear that little girl reminds me of myself at my younger days. My mom always had my hair cut exactly like her & I always had it long! I've been meaning to share that with you!;) BTW, I love this card, those are the flowers I want to grow in front of my house someday! :)

Love your new background, and this card too. It is so pretty. I like the way you placed the image on an angle.
