Kim's Birthday Card

It's my lovely friend Kim's birthday next week, so I thought I would use her favourite colours of turquoise and black to make her a birthday card and enter a few challenges with it too.

This card is for The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge #23 Anything Goes, Fab 'n Funky's Challenge #237 to make a birthday card, Digi Sketch Challenge to use food, Natalie & Amy's Challenge #26 to use stitching, faux or real (I used faux stitching), Aud Sentiments Challenge #119 to add a sentiment to a tag and for Scrapper's Delight's Challenge #35 Anything Goes.

And here's the sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge...

And here's my card - I rotated the sketch so it would fit my Birthday Girl Ellie better.

Accessories: Pool Party Ribbon from Stampin' Up, Brads from stash, Delicate Daisies Open and Complete Petals Dies from Sue Wilson @Creative Expressions, Star Dust Stickles
