Birthday Fun

Good morning, I loved the sketch over at Top Tip Tuesday so much I decided to make another card to enter into this weeks challenge.

This card is for my Niece's Daughter, does that make her a Great Niece? I'm not sure about that one.  The image is from Polka Doodles - Pretty Sweet, the latest CD from Nicky Hall and it doesn't disappoint.  I used some dark green card stock from my stash as a base and to mat the image and papers which are also from the CD.   I die cut the large flower, the sentiment and the flourishes from the same card stock and some matching lighter green.  The butterfly and rolled flowers are cut from some pink card stock.

This is the inside of my card

I apologise for the poor quality of the photographs, the weather is rather dreary here today and I'm struggling with poor light.

Image and Papers:  Polka Doodles - Pretty Sweet CD
Tools:  Spellbinders - Tear Drop Circles, Floral Flourishes, Marianne Creatables - LR0108, LR0162, Die-namics - Butterfly
Embellishments: gems and raffia from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Paper Crafting Journey Challenge 20 - Die Cuts and/or Punches
Prairie Fairy Friday Challenge 63 - Sugar & Spice & everything nice
Flutter By Wednesday Challenge 174 - Open (with a butterfly, fairy or angel)
Marianne Design Divas - Bloom and grow

Don't forget to pop over to the Willow Sketchie Challenge Blog  there's still time to have a go at this weeks challenge, we have some great stamps for the winner.

Thank you for looking, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Love the colors, the layout, the crisp and clean cut feel to your cards. Nicely done.
