Horrible weather and a birthday boy!

It's my son's 17th birthday today - Happy Birthday Owen - so sorry you're having to be at school on your birthday - at least there will be cake to look forward to later!

I know it's November and I should expect it to be cold and miserable but it's just so depressing when the skies are grey and there's practically no light. I realise we're lucky here in Scotland compared to some other parts of the UK at the moment so I really shouldn't be complaining but I'm blaming the rubbish weather for the dreadful photo I've had to use here!

Anyway on to my card for today, I've managed to fit this one to several challenges - first up: Basic Grey who are looking for Glitz and Bling, I have used Ultra Fine glitter on Miss Anya's furry bits and some red gems on my flowers, as well as using Jingle Bells & Ribbon Candy backing papers so think I'm fulfilling that challenge.

Next I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday though I rotated it 90 degrees to make it work with my image, which brings me to the next challenge - Anyone for Anya, they want to see something fake on the card so I've added some faux stitching to comply with that. Finally Passion for Promarkers had an any colour & theme this week so I was able to colour Miss Anya to fit in with the Vintage Basic Grey papers - perfect!

So 4 challenges, that might be a record for me! Off to make some birthday cake now :o)
