Shh... No One Is Watching....

Morning all.

Today it's my lovely friend Yvonne's birthday, but I'm not saying how old she is ;)

The idea for this card grew as I started making it! I had a vague idea that I was going to use Wryn and I Spy and somehow have the age as something tiny in the corner.

After I'd coloured Wryn in with my pens (and glossy accented her glasses) I added some pearls to her as her buttons I was about to print off the I Spy sentiment when I thought I'd make it look like a page of a notebook.... I was also having a cuppa at the time too and decided that a cup ring mark might be a good embellishment too. I didn't want to make another cup of tea though and in a conversation with Cathy she said "ink the bottom of the cup"... so I did just that with some Vintage Photo DI! I like the effect though.
