Multi challenge card - and a first!

Well I’m way behind everyone else but I have finally made an easel-style card *hooray*.  It was my niece’s 16th birthday yesterday and this is the card I made for my boys to give to their cousin.  I’m really pleased with the way it turned out – I may even make one again soon (once everyone else has moved onto the “next” thing I’m sure haha).  The digi-image is from TGF and is called ‘rock chick’ (it was a limited edition image and is no longer available to buy).  I coloured the image with my promarkers and cut her out and popped her up with 3d foam, although you can’t really tell in my photos (David Bailey I’m not!).  The gorgeous papers are DCWV from ‘the stack’ and the plain card is from the papermill shop.  I created the sentiment on the pc and cut it out with my SU oval punches.  The charm is from my stash as is the ribbon it’s hanging on.  The ‘16’ is from craftwork cards and again I used my SU oval punches to cut the card behind it.  The ribbon is from my stash and the adhesive stones are PM. 

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

Anyone for Anya?  - make it fake (I faux stitched around the image and sentiments)

Creative card crew #38 – favourite things (my promarkers and DCWV papers)

Cute card Thursday #87 – teen terrors (my niece was 16 and the image is very apt I think!)

Totally gorjuss #6 – nearly all gorjuss (I’m not going mad – you can enter any girly type images this week)

I hope you’re all having a good week and the weather hasn’t been too unkind to you today.  My thoughts are with all of you suffering due to the heavy rain and high winds, my heart goes out to you.  Sending you lots of love and hugs,
