Afternoon!  Hope everyone is feeling suitably chilled as we approach the halfway point of the weekend. I just popped in to share a card I've made for one of my daughter's friends whose birthday is tomorrow. Yesterday I was blog-hopping and came across a gorgeous card featuring a super-cute character and knew I was hooked! To cut a long story short (phew!) I popped over to Sassy Cheryl's Digis and had a bit of a spend!!! Her images are totally adorable, be warned, you're gonna spend some dough if you go and look!!! Lol!

My card features the super-cute Sassy Sally, one of my it is:

Isn't she CUTE! I coloured her up with Promarkers and cut round her (the 2 wee flowers in the bottom left corner are also part of the image.)

The DPs are digital, and I couldn't resist the adorable pale blue one with ladybirds  all over it :) I made some bunting on the computer spelling out the birthday girl's name and used foam pads and Baker's Twine to secure it.

I also added a gingham ribbon, a couple of stick pins and a cute ladybird charm.

I used black and white gel pens to add faux stitching around the edge of the red spotty DP and the ladybird panels, a couple of card candi dots and a 3D wooden ladybird complete the card.

I would like to enter the following challenges with my card:
Thanks for looking.
