Happy Birthday from around the World!

Happy Belated Birthday Diana! My sincere apology for being late....reason being, it took me several days to put up this special card for you together...while in the same time juggling with my full time work, busy Ramadhan month in our country & my mommy's duty. However...it is enjoyable to do these. I was inspired by those Hallmark cards I used to received in the 70's...full of different pages and images...my older cousins used to sent them from the States for my Birthday and Christmas. So...for this one, I was doing something different....using many resources I can get in Indonesia as we have limited Scrapbook goods here.

On the cover, is Captain Pilot Edwin who will take you for a journey around the world on his Jumbo jet. I was using Magnolia's DP and this Edwin came from Bon Voyage collection as are all the Tildas in this card. I cut a light blue paper and punch it with MS edger punch and embrossed it with stars from Quickutz. I also cut the clouds with Quickutz and distress the edge with Tim Holz distress ink

On the second page is the Indian American Tilda named Maggie. Maggie sits in front of the star, cut with quickutz dies and embrossed with cuttle bug. I used 2 different DP from Magnolia for this page & the swirl was cut with the Magnolia doohickey.
Maggie came from the land of the melting pot to wish Diana a very Happy Birthday!

Next was Mayumi...she came from the land of the raising sun and wishes Diana Otanjou-bi Omedetou Gozaimasu! Above her were the celebration lantern, glassed with Glossy accent.

After Mayumi, came Mathilda from the sunshine coast of Australia and also Marisol from the land of the Matadors who wishes you Feliz Cumpleanos! Marisol fan and dress were glazed with stickels....

Than Maanika...from the home of Gangga river and beautiful India...Janam Din ki badhai! I added stickels glue as well on the colibris and the waterfall to make a nice accent and on her dress as well

No journey is complete without a shopping trip in Paris...I think Birthday girl Diana deserve some pampering before captain Edwin fly her home...and Magalie will guide you throughout the shopping boulevard of the city of lights....

In addition to this birthday card, I made also a birthday banner to hang on the craftroom door..each one of the Tilda came from around the world as well. Instead of shopping Tilda, I replace her with Hawaiian Tilda..so it's really international. This banner can be hung either vertically or horizontally.

Finally...from the buttom of my heart SELAMAT ULANG TAHUN, Diana...that's what we said in Indonesian...hope you all enjoy my creations! Have a great week end to you
