A childs birthday...

Hi Susan here.

Today at 2Sisters Challenge Blog there is a new challenge beginning and the theme is Punches.... Our sponsor is Karens Doodles and the winner gets 3 digi images of their choice!!

Its great fun and the DT have some great cards on show to give you inspiration, call across and have a go at the challenge, you never know you could be the winner.

The challenge runs until August 6th.

Now to my card.... I have used a mixture of backing papers from K&Co and DCWV, I wanted fun colours and papers because this was a card for a child.

The rik-rak ribbon is from our local market.

I was very lucky to be able to use this great digi image from Karens Doodles he is called Herbert Birthday Cupcake, I coloured it in using Pro-Markers. Around the edge of the topper I stuck my own handmade confetti.

This is a little birthday hat I made to match the one worn by Herbert!!

Keeping to a simple theme, the flowers are from our stash including some hand punched felt shapes...

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
