Whoopsi Daisy - Birthday Card

Good morning all, our schools are off for half term so hopefully we may have a few days out this week, weather permitting.
It's time for another challenge at  Whoopsi Daisy  and this week it's team A's turn to share their inspiration with you. The theme this week is an easy one - we'd like to see all your birthday cards or you can do Anything Goes if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image on your project.

I've used one of the gorgeous Teddy Bear images from sheet 9 for my card, coloured with the new limited edition autumn promarkers then fussy cut before being mounted 3d onto a Spellbinders mat. Papers, lace and button are from Webster's Pages. Embossing is done with one of the new Embossalicious folders from Die'sire. Ribbon, pins, pearls and sentiment are from my stash.
I really enjoyed making this card - I went into the craft room with an idea in my head and everything else fell into place.....I do love it when they don't fight you!!
On the downside I did discover my tube of Pinflair gel had gone off.........the smell was awful, it sure cleared the nasal passages. Not a happy bunny as all the cards made using this particular tube of glue also stink!! I have kept the tube though and plan to take it with me if I get to the Secc later this month. I've heard of this happening before but I've never had any bother with mine. 
Luckily with my mojo being missing I hadn't got around to starting my nephew's wedding invites!!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team and remember if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image you could win 2 image sheets, 1 sheet will be awarded to a winner using any other image.

Art Impressions Stamp - child's birthday
Craft us Crazy - children or fall
Crafty Ribbons - children's birthday
Forever Friends - bingo (ribbon, lace and blue)
Paper Play - simply cute
Shelly's Images - tic tac toe (ribbon, free, punch/die)
