Birthday card for Nanny

Hello again friends.  I'm back to share a card I made for my boys to give to their nanny for her recent birthday.  It's a beautiful, bright and sunny day here in South Wales and I must have been dreaming of spring when I made this card as I used bright and cheerful colours for my colouring.  Here is my card:

I began by stencilling my panel with a light grey ink trying to keep the ink darker at the top.  I then stamped my image twice and coloured them with my Promarkers after which I die cut them with the matching dies.  I stamped the sentiment onto the panel with black ink.  I decided to add the images onto a white die cut circle to make them stand out a bit from the inked panel and then the whole panel was adhered to yellow cardstock before adding to my card.  The finishing touch was some sparkling gems for a little bling.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Uniko Stamps 9th birthday - make a birthday card
Use your Stuff - it's my favourite (colouring and ink blending)
Cardz 4 Galz - Mother's Day or special lady 
SSS Wednesday challenge - anything goes 
We Love Chocolate Baroque - flowers, butterflies or birds
Allsorts - feminine
Unicorn - use flowers

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.  The weather is supposed to be nice all weekend here so perfect for walking the dog.  I really brightens your mood when the sun is shining doesn't it.  

Take care and stay safe.

Uniko Stamps - Quilted stencil
