So with all that excitement on to my creation which is just up my street, loved creating this piece, but don't forget to hop on over and see the rest of the design teams amazing creations.  Also don't forget to hop and see what fabulous sponsor we have for this week.

Here is my Design Team inspirational piece
I decided to make an 8" x 8" Birthday card

The base layer and contrast here is a deep pink paper with some lovely papers from the Kanban collection, that I purchased from Grimsby Crafts.  The edge punch is the MS little daisy which has been layered and finished with some little pale blue pearls from the Hobby House.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid and have been airbrushed as has the sentiment and image plate with B23.  The ribbon was from a win and totally gorgeous to work with and felt that as the theme was ribbon had to go a little OTT with it.  The fronds on the flowers is a Marianne die.

Here are some of those all important close ups

The flowers with just a little sprinkling of stickles platinum glitter

and the image

Kenny K coloured in copics, as it is a digi image I oversized it and used my grand nestie circle and circle scallop, so that only part of the image was showing, she lost half her legs bless her.

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

Don't forget my candy which has a couple of more days to run and can be entered here
