Jessica's birthday

After a lot of coughing and spluttering our very poorly computer managed to come on this morning, possibly for the last time. Well, it is very old and we've probably done well to have got so many years out of it. The new one arrived yesterday and we're just waiting for Computer Guy to come and fetch them both, transfer everything over and get us up and running. Should only take 24 hours once he's collected all the bits and bobs so fingers crossed this old gal keeps going in the meantime.

So a quick couple of cards for challenges while I can.

This card is for my oldest grandaughter Jessica's birthday, she will be 15 at the weekend (oh my! where has the time gone!). She has a lot of interests, one of them being dance which she takes as a subject at school and has lessons out of school. When I asked her mom for an idea of what she'd like on a card the answer came quickly "a ballerina" - well I just happened to have this Tilda image which fits the bill very nicely.

I have used:
6" x 6" card base from stash
DP printed on computer - the hearts paper is from Monti's Pixel Playground "Love is like a butterfly" collection but unfortunately I can't remember where I downloaded the other one from
Purple card for mat from stash and punched with Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch
Image coloured with Promarkers and matted onto pink glitter card from stash
Flowers and buttons are Papermania
Card Candy coloured with Promarkers

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
