Sweet and Sparkly Canary

Hi all, thanks for popping by. Not such a sunny day today but at least I got the chance to get a card made.

I coloured this Saturated Canary image with Promarkers and put it in a box where it's been lying for well over a year, so on a recent sort out I decided that I must use it for a card. I'm trying to make a pile of smaller cards to be sold for charity and this is one for that pile. The paper is from my scraps box,  the flower is made with Marianne dies and the sentiment, gems and ribbon are from my stash. Finally I added some Stickles in her hair for a bit more sparkle.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Sketch N Stash challenge 'Sketch' (my 2nd entry)
ABC challenge 'G is for girls'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Use die-cuts No punches' (my 2nd entry)
Crafty Catz challenge 'Anything goes'
Divas By Design challenge 'Make it sparkle'
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'week 114 use snippets'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'Birthday'
Bearly Mine challenge 'One for the girls'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Happy birthday'

Thanks for your visit today and I have some followers candy on a sticky post at the top of my blog if you want to check it out.
