Happy Birthday Jenni, I can share at WOYWW now!!

Evening Everyone
Well here it is, Wednesday again, and I am ashamed to admit that this is what my work space looked like when I left for work this morning.
A couple of Girlfriends popped round to play yesterday evening and when they went home I just couldn't face tidying up properly, so I just cleared the dining room table in order that the Grandchildren could have breakfast today, and then dumped everything onto my desk.
But as it is Wednesday at least now I can share the project that I was working on last week when I linked to WOYWW, cause today is my daughter Jenni's birthday.
Happy Birthday Hun I hope that you have had a fabulous day.
She has decided on Chinese for dinner - Birthday Person always gets to choose what we have for dinner - so this card is even more appropriate lol.
The black Bamboo panels were created using Sticky Embossing powder, foil and Pearlex, a technique that I will be teaching at Davina's on Saturday afternoon.
I was playing with this for the Koi Carp card but the colours weren't right so it ended up here.
This little cutie is Japanese Tilda.
I have coloured her using distress inks and then paper pieced her Kimono from Japanese paper.
The burgundy card has been dry embossed using a butterfly folder and the panels behind Tilda has been cut out using a Nestie.
 The circular greeting is from Lili of the Valley, and the Heart Swirl Branch is a DooHickey.
I managed to find the Happy Birthday on a Woodware clear stamp set FRCL070 Oriental Ladies.
I hope you feel that it was worth the wait to see the finished article.
By happy accident I have made this in my daughter's favourite colours.
Oh and by the way this is what my desk looks like now, ready for a burst of activity tomorrow, I hope.
What a difference a clean up makes lol.
I am sneezing like mad, with a barking cough, but I have so much to do, as always.
Lets hope that the tablets that I have just taken mean that I will be able to breathe properly in a minute or two and then I can maybe get some sleep.
Not looking hopeful so far :(
hugs Kimx
