Happy Birthday Bonnie!

I don't know Bonnie... Ha! I've made this card at the request of an online... what I like to call... imaginary... friend. He said it was for a friend's 84 yo mother, named Bonnie who use to be in the service, likes fall colors and lady bugs. I originally wanted to use the Sassy Studio Designs image and replicate this card somewhat and then I thought about this From the Heart ladybug image and thought to reuse it but I've also been dying to color up this image... so this image won out:
Maybe you know by now... I love twisted easel cards:
Here's a view from the front:
Here's a view from the top:
Here's a closer view of the image:
Here's a look at the sentiment that almost made me cry! lol I've seen this same format around blog land and I thought I'd give it my own try. Welllll... turns out... it ONLY looked easy... but I don't sleep well these days... so it may very well be easy... just not for me today...
I also decorated the envelope:
I thought it came out so wicked awesome... 
I may as well enter it into some challenges! :-D
Card Recipe:
Sentiment with image: Ladybug Boots/Daisies Planter from Imagine That!
Image colored with Copic markers and Liquid Pearls in Buttercup
Happy Birthday sentiment inside card was created and printed from Word
Printed paper, plain card stock and ladybug charms from my stash
So I've mailed this card off to the last known address I have for this 'imaginary' friend. Sure hope he didn't move and not tell me! Why would he? He's imaginary... and can live anywhere I want in my 'Ema-gination'! lol 
Thanks for stopping by!
