Birthday Card and Squee

Todays card uses New Leaf papers by Mindy Terasawa, I picked these up at the craft fair the other day and I just love them! The image is from Beccy's Place, coloured with promarkers - amber, honeycomb, spice and marsh green. I used satin ribbon - also got at the craft fair, 23meters for £1.50 talk about a bargain! and tied a bow with same, sewing a little charm into it.

The sentiment is half from Daisy and Dandelion and half from Stampin' up - I'm not thrilled with the placement, I had hoped it would show up better than it did, but oh well, it's readable... next time I shall know honeycomb is a little too dark to stamp like that into with brown ink! And of course, I finished with a few pearls - another craft fair purchase - six packets of 100 pearls for £5 I was chuffed *g*

I used the sketch from Simon Says:

And I'm also submitting it too:
- Cute Card Thursday - #213 Metallica (my charm)
- Crafty Catz Weekly - #129 - Strips of Checks (I've gone for stripes obviously *g*)

In other news - and this would be why the squeeing! I was so thrilled to learn this morning that I won a prize over at Pollycraft Monday Challenge - a £10 voucher from Sew Sweet - I can't wait to spend it! *g*

I love using challenges as inspiration and it is the first time I've won a prize on any of the challenges, so I'm utterly delighted! :-D
