A Birthday card in Roller Skates


First of all, I would like to thank you all for all the beautiful comments you have been leaving on my posts since I started blogging again... It really makes this great hobby a lot more worth it!

Today I've got another Birthday card for you.... This time requested by my 6 year-old daughter. Her friend's 7 this week, celebrating with a party on the weekend. I tell you... I'm pretty sure my daughter has a better social life than I!!!

Her memo for this card was: no pink, no princesses..... and her friend likes skating! so my first thought was to use this digi from Tiddly Inks - Wryn Skater Girl, which I've had for a while but never used before. I'm still on my mission of using up all my digital and rubber stamps.... although that won't stop me from buying new ones, of course!
And after my obsession with using bright colours on my latest cards, I decided to use one of my favourite colour combos, kraft and blue (with a bit of black here and there...)

I followed this challenging sketch from Creative Corner Challenge
I found it interesting and challenging, as I didn't know how to incorporate the image and the small circle into the sketch... I hopefully made it work!!!!
