Birthday Wishes + Challenges

Good Evening my Dears,  I am absolutely loaded with a rotten head cold today, I was working last night doing cabaret in West Lothian where I must say the weather was atrocious.  I was driving home in  the most awful snowstorm blizzard conditions at 1.00am in the morning, I must have caught a chill in the -2 deg snowy conditions when I was loading up my car with my equipment.  I've so far had 3 lemsips, a couple of dozes on the settee, but I managed to make this card between 10am and now in starts n stops. 

I've used the newest Adorable stamp from Sugar Nellie, she is called Connie, isn't she stunning. I coloured her with my pro markers and cut her on an oval nestie die and mounted her onto a Nellie Sneddon fancy scalloped die.  My flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts but the gardenia have been pulled apart and re formed to suit my needs and I've popped little card candy in the centres. The full recipe for my card is below this post.

I hope you all have a wonderful day/evening.

The challenges I'm entering are:

The Sugar Bowl:  I followed Erika's lovely sketch and went with the extra theme of Spring.

Wild Orchid Craft:  Would like to see Die Cuts and /or Punches.  I've used Nestie's, Nelli Sneddon and Marianne D's heart die's, I've also used a scallop punch for my sentiment.

The Shabby Tea Room:  Would love to see our Celebration/Birthday creations as they Celebrate their own 1st Birthday this week.

Cute Card Thursday:  Would love to see your Birthday Cards this week as they also celebrate their own 3rd  Birthday  this week.
