Birthday Card for CoWorker



I made this card for a coworker for her birthday, As you can see I have kept it pretty simple. Kind of afraid it will go in the trash after some time and I could not bear to but all the details on it just to go in the trash. So since I do not know for sure what will happen I decided to play it safe.
This little Tilda is from the So Spooky Collection I just cut the broom off. I think she is so sweet and you can purchase her from Diana at Magnolia-licious here. Oops sorry it looks like she is out of stock right now sorry.
Cardstock is Basic Grey Lemonade
Copic Markers:
Skin: E11, E00, E000 and R20
Hair: E59, E49, E53 & E25
Dress: RV25, RV21, RV22 & C1
Shoes: E18, E15 & E11
Thanks for stopping by and looking. I would love to read what you think of my card.
Thank you all so much!
Hugs,
Nancy

I also love the simplicity. We´ve a saying: "The beauty is on the simpliest things!" or in portuguese "A beleza está nas pequenas coisas, nos pequenos gestos"
I think it´s very elegant and I also the soft colors.
