Happy Birthday

Well so far so good with the builder's. They've converted half the garage to a room and knocked through to the house with very little mess or disruption. Tomorrow the plasterers arrive.
This little chap arrived in the post this afternoon a challenge prize given by Whiff of Joy. I decided to ink him up while tea was cooking.

He's coloured with promarkers then cut out with a nesties four label and matted onto co-ordinating Papermania cardstock. Card is finished with a stamped sentiment and some pearls.

Tip - use your promarkers to colour white pearls to match perfectly with your colour scheme.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Happy Birthday
Creative Inspirations - let's celebrate
Top Tip Tuesday - one for the kids
