For a Special Friends Birthday

I won the challenge at Pollycraft last week and with my prize I bought the fabulous Mega Bundle of all the new images since the store reopened. I was a Pollycraft fan from before and so happy to see them reopen and the new designs are just so much fun and so I thought I'd play along with their latest challenge with one of their images.
I decided to go with a twisted easel style card, it is super easy to do and just gives a little extra "twist" to the display of the card.

This little cutie just makes me smile :) I fussy cut her out and added another head to give more dimension. I added Stickles to the flowers for a little more sparkle, what Birthday Girl doesn't like a little bling?
