Stocking up

I realised recently that my stock of birthday cards was running a bit low so today's card had to be a birthday one, I also needed to work quickly as I've had to work at the library a lot more than usual and have only had one day off since last Tuesday and I'm now struggling to be ready for a craft fair in a fortnight's time.

I looked for an image which I had already coloured up with my Promarkers as a starting point and then looked for a few challenges to inspire me. I chose this Tilda image which I've had waiting to be used on a card for quite a while and then looked for papers to work alongside the colours I had used. These ones from Doolicraft seemed to fit best and looked good with the metallic cardstock I have used to die cut the scalloped circle and punch the tabs.

Entering my card for these challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Eyelets 
Delightful Challenges - Pastels and Ribbons 
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Ribbons & Bows 
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Celebrations
Meljens Designs - Punches
Stamp Insanity - Punch It Out
