When I recently went away on holiday, I had planned to post a birthday card to my pal who's birthday was the day after we arrived home.  Unfortunately, I didn't remember to post it until I was on the way to the airport - which of course was too late!!  To make amends, I decided to create another special 'sorry it's late' card to send to her instead.

Vicki has set all of us on the QKD DT a private crop challenge over the last few days and as the theme is to make a 'belated' card using the colour orange, this was just perfect for the card for my pal!  So this is also my entry for the crop. 

I used this lovely 'Peace of Mind' Mermaid from Queen Kat Designs for the card - by the way, all the stamps in the QKD Store have 40% off from now until 31 March - a great time to add to your collection of QKD stamps. 

I love these warm and sunny colours and as it is supposed to be almost Spring, I thought they were ideal for this March birthday card.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and added a little Spica glitter pen in orange and clear to give her a little sparkle.  The butterfly is one of the accessory stamps from the QKD March WIS Kit and ideal to use with this Mermaid.

I created the sentiment on my computer and printed it in orange ink to match the colour scheme.  I hope she is going to like it and I will be putting in in the mail tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting and allowing me to share this card with you, I hope you'll stop by again tomorrow and join in with the QKD Monday Blog Hop.
