Happy birthday dear friend
I don't usually use die-cut decoupage, but I fell in love with this Kanban set of Matryoska dolls while I was on holiday. I adore these little nesting dolls, and we bought several sets while we were in Prague at the Christmas Market three years ago, as well as some beautiful very expensive Bohemian glass. I have fond memories of the hot apple punch with Calvados too, and the divine hot chocolate from Odkolek, but less fond memories of the potato dumplings, cabbage soup and the strangest Tesco EVER!!
The Kanban set came with some matching pale green flowered card, and some tags, so it really was a quick simple card. I added some check paper and paper lace, with some coredinations pink cardstock, and coloured the jade green flowers and punched leaves with copics. The pink ones are from my stash. A few little pearls and gems coloured pink with my copic markers, and hey presto - all done! The inside, (which I forgot to take a picture of) is decorated to match.
Thanks so much for coming to visit my blog, and if you leave me a comment I'll know you've been, and will come over to your blog too and have a nice nosey around!
