Happy birthday...

I folks...well I couldn't wait any longer...I had to use one of the simply sassy stamps I already had for this card. The postie has not brought my new stamps!!!! I also couldn't decide whether to enter the GDT call for the Simply as you can see I have decided....although it's only for 2 months I thought I would give it a bash. For this card I have used BG - Marjolaine papers which I totally love just now. The image is Party Frills - Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy which I have coloured with promarkers. I had a few of these coloured from a few weeks ago as I had entered the Simply Sassy DT Call and was trying to perfect my colouring. I also added some stitching (still a bit wonky!!)and embossing, punch the ovals and finished off with those cute little flowers which are new from Wild Orchid Crafts..oh yes I also added some sequins and beads for the centres of the flowers on the embossed oval....hand sewn!! I have entered the following challenges.

Simply Sassy GDT Call
I ♥ Promarkers - punches
Paperplay - cutie Patootie
Dutch Dare - all stitched up
Some Odd Girl - embossing
Stampin' for the Weekend - new & blue
Stamp Something - anything goes
Totally Papercrafts - happy birthday
