Cherrie sends sweet birthday wishes....

Hi Susan here....

Can you believe its Friday again!....the weeks are flying.
We are half way through our challenge at Fussy and Fancy, the theme is 'Paper Piecing and Dry Embossing', for full details of the challenges and to see some fabulous inspiration from the design team take a trip to the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us.

Now onto my card....

My polka dot backing paper is from a free download from ages ago, I am sorry I can't remember from where. The embossed card was done using a cuttlebug folder and then gently inking over the top. The edges were then glittered with stickles. My ribbon, lace and pearls are all from our local market. My flowers are from Hobby Craft and the little butterflies have been made using a punch and inking the wings.

My gorgeous cute little image is from Tickled Pink Stamps and is called 'Cherrie with mail'. I have used Promarkers to colour the image. Her trousers were paper pieced using the same backing paper but in a reduced size to suit the size of the image. I have mat and layered onto matching card and a paper doily.

My tickets are from Raindrop Echo Designs the words by me have been done on my computer.
