LOTV First Birthday Card

Hello again!

Just a quick post tonight because it's late and I have work in the morning!  So much for the early night I was planning...

Tonight's card is a first birthday card I made for my friend's daughter.  For the layout I've used the sketch from the current I Love Promarkers challenge.  I couldn't resist buying a new LOTV stamp for the occasion it's soooo cute and I know it will be one I can use again and again.

I've coloured in the image with ProMarkers to match the papers which were a freebie from Papercraft Essentials a while back.  I'm trying to be good and use up some of the massive stash of freebies I've built up!  I've edged the blue patterned paper with a border die from X-cut.  All dies used are by X-cut too.  The sentiment is also by LOTV.  I've finished off my card with spotty organza ribbon, pearls and a ready made glitter number and flower combo.

Oh well, I'd better get off to bed or the snooze button will be getting hit several times in the morning!!!
