Faces at Crafts & Me

Evening all!  I'm settling in well to my new post, being kept busy and the scenery is very nice indeed!
Been splashing about on the boat and have discovered a new past time for our Ethan - collecting sea glass.  He is absolutely fascinated with it!  We'll make something out of the pieces of glass and pottery we find when we have enough!  Also been sorting out the back garden, Molly wants to make a den so have been assessing the area and trying to figure out how we're going to do it but she's determined to have her den lol!

Over at Crafts & Me Challenge this month the theme is Faces.  That is the face is the main focus of the card, doesn't have to be human either!  For this I chose Easter Lily by Hannah Lynn digi stamp and went for pastels in pink, blue and yellow to draw more attention to the face and hair.  I matted it on plain card coloured with matching promarkers then couldn't decide what backing paper to use so spent some time shuffling these around as you do then decided to keep her plain and simple with a couple of embellishments; a yellow sparkly butterfly and iridescent gems and I felt that was enough for this one.
The greeting is Penblwydd Hapus meaning Happy Birthday in Welsh.
Thanks for looking and hope you pop over to the challenge and join in too!

I'd like to enter into...
