Happy 5th Birthday

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well.  Well, it was the start of a new working week today and I'm already hoping that Friday will come round quickly.  Got a couple of staff on my section off this week so things are a bit busy to say the least.  Doesn't help when I have to spend an hour attending a training session that was totally unnecessary.  But if the boss says I have to go then I have to go!!!
Anyways, managed to get in my crafty space for a little while when I got home and came up with this little creation.  My daughter asked me if I could make a card for one of her friends daughters who will be 5 years old in the next few weeks.

I recently won a free image from Pixie Dust Studio in one of their challenges.  I chose this little cutie called Pixie Pearl and she was just perfect for this card.  She is coloured in promarkers and lots of glamour dust added to her wings.  I also gave her sparkly shoes.  The backing paper has been in my paper box for months and was a freebie with a magazine.  The pink panel at the side has been embossed using a fairly new folder I have.  It is from Papermania and has lots of little buttons all over it.  For the number 5 I used a chipboard that I had.  It was coloured in promarkers and I then sanded it to give it an aged look.  The flowers are some felt ones that I have had in my stash for months and I topped them with some lovely pink buttons.  Final finishing touches were some of my die cut butterflies, a sentiment, some bow, pearls and a little chipboard butterfly.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - Ribbon and buttons
Papertake - Cute, cute, cute
Sketch and Stash - use sketch and new/neglected stash (digi is new, most of the rest is from my stash)
Digi Doodle - Bingo Board (buttons, ribbon, flowers)
Card Makin Mamas - Flowers
Paperplay - Chipboard
Catch the Bug - Things with wings
Totally Gorjuss - Pink and green
Charisma Cardz - Pink n girlie
Fab N Funky - Buttons and Bows

Thanks for popping by and for all the lovely comments you leave me.  I do read every single one and appreciate your support and encouragement.
Take care.
