Who Doesn't Love a HUG ?

Evening peeps,
Phew! What a day! We've been racing round getting organised for back to school tomorrow and had a birthday party this afternoon for my daughter's best friend. I had cut it fine making her card, and was putting it together this morning, when my oldest announced that he had to make a 'working' volcano by tomorrow for his homework!! Argh! Kids!! So, DH and I were racing round looking for stuff to use, ironing uniform, showering kids, throwing together a volcano, finishing off the can picture the scene, right!?!?
Anyway, we somehow got through the day, and I thought I'd share some pics of the card I made for the little girl's birthday.
I followed the current sketch at A Gem of a Challenge (see below.)
 My image is the adorable Sassy Cheryl's Love's Healing Hands, and is coloured with Promarkers.
My DPs are Pink Petticoat Lots of Really Big Dots and are layered onto white and black card. I added some ric rac along the bottom and some white paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. A computer-generated sentiment & some small blue flower gems on the top lefthand side complete my card. I decorated the inside to match.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge #48 - Sketch.
Craft Punked wk23 - Birthday.
Crafty Ann's #67 - For the Girls.
I Love Promarkers #120 - For a Little Girl.

Thanks for popping in.
