A card for a friend!

I made this card for a wonderful friend I made blogging. We met when she applied for my DT and we became good friends fast. We talk often though lately not as much. She is layin low in blogland and has gone back to school. She has been under the weather as of late and I just wanted to send her a little card to pick her up. I also want to send her a few goodies as I missed her birthday a few weeks ago. Naughty me.
 The adorable background image is a printable from PCcrafter. I am not sure if I was allowed but I photoshopped the little girl that was in it out, and cut poor Tildas legs off so she would look like she was kneeling on a cushion with her little Cinderella-esque friends! haha!
I threw the butterfly in and no flowers as I am going to enter over at OOH LA LA where the challenge is no flowers. I hope the little flowers on the background paper don't count. I am pretty sure they mean no adding paper flowers......I hope!
I am also entering over at Just Magnolia where anything goes this week and Allsorts which has the theme travel or holiday. I think Tilda looks like she is enjoying a holiday in the park, I think she is gone camping!
I am entering at Paper Sundaes where the challenge is use something from your stash. I bought the butterflies a long time ago at dollaramma and found they were just too bright for any card I made till this one! The green raffia ribbon is also stash from dollaramma as well. Finally my last entry is at Catch the bug which is also an anything goes this week.

And that is it from Truvy guys! No more cards for a bit, I have other jobs to do. This blog is one of them so keep your eyes peeled for some perdy bloggyness coming soon!

Truvy aka Bertie!
