A Card At Last

Good morning everyone and I hope you are all well. This is another quicky post and an early one for me - especially on a school holiday, lol. I am off to visit the doctor with Wee Steven this morning - sore throat and really bad cough so thought I'd get it checked.

Anyway, onto the purpose of the post...This has been made for my daughter, Kimberley's birthday. She'll be 15 on the 6th March. As soon as I saw this Dancing Willow from the WOJ City Girls Collection, I knew I had to have reminded me of Kimberley straight away...always all done up and full of life and of course...Gorgeous!

So...Willow has been coloured with Distress Inks, Copics and Watercolour Pencils. I have added stickles to her necklace and used to sparkly gems for the dangly bits on necklace and bracelet. The paper is a Nitwits download and the cardstock and ribbon are from my stash. I have also used my Martha Stewart Lace Doily border punch.

Now, I can ente rthis into a few challenges:

1. One Stop Craft - Sketch Challenge
2. Allsorts - 3,2,1 Recipe (3 flowers, 2 punched edges and 1 ribbon)
3 Cupcake Craft - Keep It Simple
4 Papertake Weekly - Check This Out (Checked DP)
5 ABC - O is for One Paper
6 My Time To craft - Green and One Other (pink)

That's about it - I think. Thanks for taking the time to look. Please leave me a comment if you stop by so I an return the visit.
