Lucy's 6th Birthday Card

Morning all - I'm trying to do a secret posting today of my daughter Lucy's 6th birthday card - I was all made up and ready to go with her card and she decided to announce that her favourite colour was no longer red - now it was blue!!!! So off I trotted into my craft attic last night and made a new one - ssshhhh - here it is!




The image is from Crafty sentiments Design and I think is called party girl - I loved her when she was released this year and finally got her a few weeks ago with a 15% off offer - thanks for the heads up Shelby!!! I've coloured her with promarkers and added some glitter. My sparkle and shine  is in the form of my added extras - metal flowers - pins with a pin holder - a heart charm and gem flower. I've followed the sketch from the totally gorjuss challenge and would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

bearlymine-challenges: Sparkle and shine
lexiscreations: sparkle and shine
The ribbon girl CBribbongirls: ribbon flower charm
PIOpileitonchallenge: Add some metal
One stitch at a timeonestitchatatimechallenge - white +1 (blue)
 totallygorjuss- sketch

I think I might have gotten away with it! Happy Wednesday - we're off to a pottery birthday party today then a freebie dance class - woohoo!!!

Big Hugs
