Happy Birthday Iona

Hi there,

Just a very quick post tonight, it's been a very hectic 2 weeks since going back to work and my last post.  Our daughter Iona was eight yesterday and she had a wee party at the cinema and Burger King on Saturday and we had a family lunch at a local Chinese Restaurant yesterday, she had a fab time at both.

As you can see from the cake Iona absolutely adores Moshi Monsters and asked if I would make her a 'Poppet' card for her birthday.  I'm glad she was pleased with the result, she told me I must never throw it out because she loves it, that made it all worthwhile :0)

I found the image in the form of a colouring page online and coloured it with my Promarkers before giving it a spritz of Spray & Sparkle.  The papers are from the Papermania Spots & Stripes Brights Capsule Collection, as are the buttons.  I've added faux stitching to the papers using a pokey tool and a fine tipped pen.  I've added some letter stickers from Carole's Crafts, pearls from Hobbycraft and finally the number was part of a goody bag I received as a challenge prize.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin Challenge- Spots & Stripes
