A One in Seven Card

Good morning everyone.  Brrrr, we had a really heavy frost last night, it's still quite cold but we now have bright sunshine!  I feel reassured that spring is just around the corner.

I've made a card today for one of Emily's friends, whose mother is frantically preparing for her daughter's ninth birthday - party in their home.  Think she is very brave opening up the house to quite a lot of 'tweenagers' lol!

I used the sketch over at Allsorts for this.  I am not entering this in their challenge as I've already put in my entry.  They do not want links with other challenges for this one as they have a DT call out.  So, if you have time, why not take a look over there.

Cute Card Thursday - Bloomin Gorgeous
Dutch Dare - Summer in Winter
Pile it On - Enough of Winter Colours
The Pink Elephant - Your Favourite TPE Challege (mine is
#51 Polka Dots, a Bow & Pink)
Saturday Spotlight - Bigger is Better (Flowers - 4 on each)

 This was a fabulous sketch to work with and I love this new image and girly papers,which are quite summery too.  There flowers are each made up of four which is a bit OTT for me, so hope that satisfies all the briefs!


Image - Mo's Digital Pencil
Colouring Mediums - copics and watercolour pencils
Papers - Basic Grey
Cardstock - Sizzix
Flowers - Prima
Bow - ribbon from stash
Glitter - Glamour Dust
Card Candy

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your day.
