Bee crafty challenge #18

b'day card (5)

b'day card (5) close up

This is my card for the current bee crafty challenge, which is ‘add some sparkle’.  I made for this for my niece’s 16th birthday last Monday.  The image is digital and is by sketching stamper and is called ‘vicki shops’.  I coloured the image with my promarkers.  The gorgeous glittery paper is by DCWV from the glitter stack (and this was my last piece *sob*) and the grid papers is doodlebug.  The flowers are from my stash and the leaves were punched with my L’em punch.  The sentiments were created on the pc (the round one was cut with my nesties and the oval one with my SU oval punches) and the adhesive glittery dots were from QVC. 

It was my son’s 13th birthday yesterday (Saturday) and I can’t believe that my baby is now a teenager *yikes*).  We went for a birthday treat of pizza and cinema.  He wanted to see 2012 and it was quite good, although I was a typical girl and cried in all the sad bits!!  Here is a picture of my son taken in the summer (he’ll kill me if he sees this).

I’m also going to enter my card for a spoonfull of sugar challenge as their challenge this week is a colour combo of brown plus either pink or blue.  Obviously I have used pink but there is a bit of orange too so I hope this will still count.  I hope you are all having a fab weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
