Happy birthday Tina

I'm very happy to be showing you a b-day card I made for a woman named Tina that I shared room with at the hospital. I used my new stamp from Whiff of joy that I think is sooo cute! I just love the content look st his face. The bright colours and glittery papers wrap it up.

He is coloured with promarkers. Did you notice the shade he casts under him on the gifts? I'm quite proud of that colouring. I feel like I'm getting better and better at that :)

I used a sketch from Lili of the valley. The sketch was absolutely brilliant but I thought I was too late to enter. Then I noticed it ends tomorrow, so I just made it! I'm also entering this card for the promarker challenge that had "all creatures big and small" as their theme. Cute card thursday had "blooming gorgeous" and dutch dare cardchallenges had "summer in winter". Pile it on also wanted summery colours and one stop craft challenge wanted something personal. ABC challenge had N for new this week and I have new papers, stamp and flowers.
I also found a bunch of new challenge blogs to add to my long list. Here are a few that my card fit:
belli challenge - RIBBONS (I've had this ribbon for ages and never found anything to use it with)
Crafty creations  - WINGS (the little dragonflies)
Your next stamp - ANYTHING THAT SPARKLES (Wish you could see these beautiful glitter papers)

Hope you enjoyed my card. Now I'm off to make another one. I also need to get strted on my DT card for sweet pea stamps. I got january off due to me being sick, but now I'm back, so you'll be seeing at least one sweet pea card/week. See you soon ;)

Promarkers: tan, putty, walnut, cinnamon, pear green, moss, sunflower, ginger, honeycomb, amber, pumpkin, orange, blender
Papers: SEI
Stamp: Whiff of joy
