A Birthday Card for our Daughter

Good afternoon,

What a fantastically sunny day we are having here in Inverness!  We had an early start this morning as we decided to do a car boot sale to clear some space (which I can now fill with some crafting goodies) and went prepared for all weathers, I even took my sheepskin boots and gloves but most of the layers were discarded as the morning went on lol.

Today's card is one I made for our daughter Iona who was 9 earlier this month.  This is her favourite stamp and she asked if I would use it on her card.  I was actually quite please as it saved me agonising over what to make for her!

I've tried to make it a bit more funky by using quite bright papers and teaming them with black cardstock.

The Stamp is Peek a Boo from Sugar Nellie and I've coloured it using Promarkers.  The papers I've used are Oh La La by My Minds Eye.  The round sentiment is by LOTV and the daughter one is from a huge and really useful set from Docrafts.  A die cut flourish using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die, spotty ribbon and some black gems finish off my card.

I hope you are having a good weekend and the sun is shining wherever you are.

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