Sending you Birthday wishes

My intention for this card was to do the acrylic challenge at Tiddly Inks.  I am not sure if an overlay "counts" but that is what i have used.  I also wanted to play at Birthday Sundaes and added ribbon and a birthday sentiment as well.
What i did:
I used an overlay frame that i had saved.  I made an oval and put it behind the overlay and then attached it to a white piece of paper by stitching around the inside black oval.  Then i folded the paper in half to turn it into a card, by having the fold on the left.  I cut around the frame except for at the fold.  Colored and cut out the Tiddly Ink image, added sparkle to the wings by using a Gelly Roll clear star pen.  I attached her with pop dots.  Made my own oval sentiment, added ribbon and flowers to the top of the frame.  This card measures about 7" tall.

Anything counts as long as it is acrylic and fits the challenge. An overlay sounds just fine. This is a beautiful project. Glad you could join our challenge at Tiddly Inks this week!
