Emma and the Cake

Hello to all my crafty friends and followers. I hope you are all having a good week.
Between trying to help my daughter move and help my son settle at uni I feel like my head is in too many places at the moment. I'm sure things will settle down but I do hope it's soon!
I am looking forward to the weekend as everyone is going to be busy doing their own things I am planning a huge chunk of craft time just for me. I have a couple of ideas for cards and just want some time to experiment. I saw a lovely pattern on something I had to print at work the other day so want to try and incorporate that into a card-will let you know if it works!!
My card today is using a gorgeous image from Fred She Said which I won in a recent challenge-I've never used any before but feel I may just have to be buying a few more!
I used my Papermania Wild Rose papers again, don't laugh but I love these so much I had to go out and buy the Eau de nil pack yesterday-I may just have to get a second job at this rate! I've coloured her with my Promarkers,adding some spots with a white gel pen and die cut her out, using a faux nestie behind. I thought she could do with some birthday banners but as I don't have a die cut set I had a go at making my own and was fairly pleased with how they turned out. I found a cute cupcake chipboard shape in my box and finished off with some flowers and gems:

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps challenge # 88 - white + one other
Glitter n Sparkle challenge # 104- use flowers
Whoopsi Daisy challenge -use 2 or more papers
The Pink Elephant # 270- anything goes
Paper Makeup challenge # 160 - favourite colour
Crafty Sentiments challenge - bingo (digi, die cut & gems)
Passion for Promarkers challenge # 267 - feminine

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week. Thank you for stopping by today and for any comments you may wish to leave.
Until next time.
