MAWTT Challenge 154 - Happy Birthday!!

Hello... Hope you are all doing ok... I'm here with another card for...

and in case you don't know already - it's our 3rd Birthday!!! and so we're having an extra special Challenge lasting a fortnight with lots of really fab prizes... and of course the theme is ... 
'Happy Birthday'

There are lots of fab prizes to win so we really hope you can join in and enter this exciting Challenge... 

This week I am showing a card using a gorgeous image by Willow Designs who are one of our fab sponsors...

and they are kindly offering a £10 Voucher to spend in-store as prize!!! How cool is that!!

I have used one of their stamps called 'Busy In The Garden' and it's so perfect for a Summer Birthday!

I've paper pieced her overalls to match the Backing Paper which is from Raspberry Road - 'Summer Goodness' Papers. I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers. Then masked and ink dusted the background with Tim Holtz 'Wild Honey' and Memento 'Bahama Blue'. Sentiment is from 'Happy Circular Sentiments Set' LOTV and I've printed it onto some leftover paper and mounted on Nestie. The fancy border is Memory Box 'Pepita Border' available at My Crafty Heart

The other Gardening embellies... the Fork, The Sun Hat and the Butterfly are from a John Lewis set that my daughter bought me last year... Thank You hun!!

For more details of  all our Fab Sponsors and to see all the Prizes that you can win.. please pop on over to our main blog... MAWTT and you will also see some brand new creations from my Teamies that are there for inspiration...!! They are all gorgeous!! 

A quick reminder of our rules... it doesn't have to be a card... as long as your creation follows the 'Birthday' theme.... Please No Backlinking (which means your creation must not have been posted before the 21st June when our Challenge began). Don't forget that you can enter up to 3 times!!! obviously with different creations! We really hope you can all join in the fun and you never know you might be a winner of one of our Fab Prizes!! don't forget you have until Wednesday 4th July at 8pm BST to get your entres in...
