Birthday Girl

Evening Folks,
Had planned a day of crafting today but nothing turns out that way.  Between going food shopping, helping to cook dinner and catching up with the huge pile of washing I have not had much time in my crafty room.
However, I have managed to get one of my nieces birthday cards done.
Now this is quite a different colour combo for me to use.  However, over the last few weeks my niece has been peeking in my crafty room and has mentioned various items that she likes and would like to see on a card.  The main item she really liked was the glitter card that forms the first layer.  It is an aqua sort of colour and this set the tone for the rest of the card.
The stamp is a cute one from Wild Rose Studio.  As usual I coloured with promarkers.  Had to colour the cat in grey as my niece has a little grey kitten which she adores.  I cut the bow in her hair out of the same glitter card on the background.  The papers are all from my bits and bobs tin that I am trying to use up.  Although you can't see it very well I put some lace and ribbon on the left side of the card.  Final touches were the flowers, feather and gems.  Added some extra glitter to the flower as my niece does like things glittery.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I love promarkers -  Cute and Cuddly
Totally Papercrafts -  Spots and Stripes
Stampin for the Weekend - Out with the old (papers and flowers)
Let's ink it up - anything goes
The Crafty Pad - New Year Sparkle
One Stitch at a Time - Anything goes

Thanks for looking and hope that you pop back soon.
By the way, at the moment I simply take my photos on my digital camera and upload them as they are into my blog.  Am looking for a reasonable photo package to enable me to do a bit more with them and maybe make them look a bit more interesting.  If anyone uses a good package that they could recommend I would really appreciate it.
