I'm back!!!! First birthday card!

Hi! I'm back!!!!
We went away for mid-term break to visit family and friends... we had a lovely time, it's great to catch up with friends I haven't seen for a while...

Anyway, it will be a quick post today, as it seems I haven't only brought happy memories from my time away... I've brought the worst of the colds (or flu, never know the difference...).

I also want to let you all know that Scribble and Scrap Crafts is having a

SALE!!!!



So today's card, I decided to make a 1st birthday card for a Baby Girl...







This time I used this card sketch from Fussy and Fancy challenge. So many nice layers, I had to try it!!!

For the vertical layer, I used striped paper and a punched border. 
I used a paper doily for the circle layer, and wide ribbon for the horizontal layer.







I used:

Digital stamp "Walker" by Mo Manning (I really wanted to used this image again... I've just used it once before I started blogging, isn't she cute?
Papers: small polka dots and stripe papers are freebies from craft magazine; Snippets collection by Studio Calico (yellow checked paper) and a small scrap of paper from  First Edition Love Letters (pink polka dots behind sentiment)

I hand-stitched the background paper and image with white thread.









Promarkers I used:

Sandstone, Buttercup, Eggnogg
Vanilla, Almond
Pink Carnation, Blossom, Pink Mittens
Mustard













The flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Buttons, charm, heart rhinestone (on top of charm), bow, ribbon and washi tape are from local shops.

I created the sentiment on my computer and put it on top of a circle die-cut.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges (in alphabetical order)



Creative Corner challenges - A little bit (pink polka dot paper circle is from a  piece of scrap, buttons,pearls)
Just Inspirational - Hearts and ribbon (heart rhinestone and pink wide ribbon)
Mo's digital challenge #222 - Use ribbon with Mo image
Oldie but a Goodie - Buttons (bow, ribbon, charm, rhinestone are old stash) 2nd entry


I really hope you like this card. If you do, please leave a comment.. and don't forget to follow if you are not already!!!

Until next time!!!
