MIL Birthday

I have so many birthdays coming up over the next few weeks that I don't know whether I'm coming or going. My MIL's birthday is next week, as well as my friends' daughter, my nephew, my cousin and Pepsi. Not forgetting my youngest, Faith who turns 4 on Sunday - and that's just one week lol
Anyway, I thought I better get my MIL's card done before Graham goes offshore tomorrow so he can write it out. I'll nip to Markies this week and pop a gift card in it for her too.

Image is Stella (a digi) from Bugaboo Stamps, coloured with my trusty promarkers: warm grey 1-5 for the hair, Coral, Sunkissed Pink and Blush for the skin, warm grey 3 and duck egg for her top, black, cool grey 2,3, 5 for the tyres, arches and ground. Lime Zest, Lime Green and Bright Green for the car, Baby Pink and Cerise for the wheels, and interior.

The papers are all MME, a freebie from Papercraft Essentials magazine, which were distressed with my Tim Holts distressing tool and inked with Worn Lipstick distress ink. Pearls are Prima e line.


I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges...

Digital Tuesday - Happy Birthday
One Stop Craft Challenge - Colour challenge
Stamp Something - Something Digital
Sunday Sketch & Stamp - Sketch
