First Birthday Card This Year

Hello and Happy Friday peoples! I hope you've had a good week. My week has been extremely busy at work, and I have brought work home but I don't know whether I'll get the motivation to do anything with it.

Eleri is going to a friend's birthday party tomorrow, so I have made a card and present. I was going to wait to show them both together but I've realised some of the challenges I was going to enter end tonight/early tomorrow so I thought I should show the card on its own.

The image for this card was a freebie from Pink Gem Designs, called Rollerskate Milly - I've used the pre-coloured version because of shortage of time and lack of mojo. The papers are from the same pad as my previous post - a free pack from Crafts Beautiful magazine. The embossing folder was also a freebie in Do Crafts Creativity magazine. Nothing more to say about the card really, except that the photo makes it look a bit more wishy washy than it is in real life.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge - the sketch I followed
Charisma Cardz - Happy Birthday
Anything Goes - Anything Goes

I'm just going to make the gift box for the pressie, and hope to show that over the weekend sometime, so see you then.

Love, Andrea xx
