Bugaboo Birthday

Hi everyone and a Happy Mothers Day to all you moms out there. I had all good intentions of doing some very necessary housework this morning but got sidetracked in my crafty room resulting in this card.

I used a Bugaboo digistamp 'frame it - bears birthday' which I coloured with my usual Promarkers. I was toying with the idea of soft pastels but in the end the cheery bright colours won, as did the red card blank. To finish, all that was needed were gold peel-offs from my stash and a die-cut star.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Mod Squad challenge 'feature a creature'

I Love Promarkers challenge 'use a number'

Catch The Bug challenge 'anything goes'

bastel-traum challenge 'birthday'

Noor! Design UK challenge 'clean and simple'

Thanks for popping by today and all your lovely comments. I'll be around to visit you as soon as I've flicked around with the duster. I love the sunshine but don't you just hate the way it shows up every speck of dust you've been trying to convince yourself doesn't exist !

Well I didn't flick around my duster yet either, however I did go to the market and put all the foot away. LOL Your morning looked like you had more fun than I did. This card is just adorable. Like that gold "4" also. Enjoy the rest of the day.

This is a lovely fun card - the bright colours are perfect (I agree, much better than pastel for this card). I hope the lucky 4 year old likes it too.

Sidetracked and craft room in one sentence? Never! Now, sidetracked FROM the craft room, I can understand! ;-)
You were so right to go with bold colours on this image because they look amazing.

Good sidetracking Andrea, it's such a lovely bright and cheerful card. If you have time I could do with a bit of flicking.
