for Laura

It's the start of the Easter holidays here for Jake, 2 weeks off school. So I guess we'll be playing games and doing some baking in the next fortnight :)

Today's challenge at Sketch Saturday is sponsored by our friends at The Craft Barn who are providing another fabulous prize for our lucky challenge winner this week.

My daughter, Laura, will be 21 on the 1st of May. This is her birthday card from me and her Dad using this weeks sketch, I don't think she will see it on here because she's not a visitor to my blog.

The image is called 'Sweet Blossom' and you can buy her from Wee Stamps, isn't she beautiful? I coloured her with promarkers.
The pretty papers are by First Edition, from their Hideaway collection, although the plainish piece is by Nitwit Collections.
The sentiment has been hand-drawn/written after I scribbled the same promarker colours onto a scrap piece of cardstock. I had to very carefully cut it out with a craft knife and scissors.
Finished off with flowers and crystals, using the crystals to spell '21'
Hope Laura likes it, I didn't use her fave colour (pink) but I couldn't resist these colours for this sweet image, especially for Springtime.

The Saturdays have created some beautiful cards this week, please stop by and see for yourself, this week sees the final card made by Cor, who has been such a fabulous guest designer for us throughout March, we've been lucky to have her on board, Thank you Cor! xx
