Happy 6th Birthday ZOE !!!

Today is my beautiful little girl ZOE's 6th birthday, and we have a beautiful day to enjoy it! After collecting her from school, she wants a trip to Toys R Us to spend some of the birthday money that's already burning a hole in her pocket!! After that, she has chosen to go for a meal at our local family-friendly pub then back home for birthday cake :) And what she doesn't know is that as well as the pressies she opened this morning, we have a brand new bike waiting here at home for her! She went into school with her hair down (special treat as I ALWAYS tie it up,) and wearing her big '6' badge....she was sooooo excited!

Anyway, here's the card I made for her (and I did it in plenty od time too, unlike the usual rush or very late night I usually have the night before a family member's birthday!!)

I couldn't resist this adorable image, its from The Paper Shelter and is very appropriately called 'Zoe Spring.'

you receive both a coloured version and a line-drawn version, and for a change, I used the coloured one. The BP is a digital freebie (not sure where from) and I used matching bazzill card for matting and layering and to cut the butterflies using my craft tonic punch.

The sentiments are computer created and I used an organza ribbon' a pearl stick-pin and flat-backed pearls from my stash to complete.

I am going to enter the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
