C'est La Vie!

Good morning to you all, I hope you are all fine and well.  Here in Blackpool we have had two days of lovely weather, milder temperature and sunshine! Long may it last.  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Card Makin Mamas and the theme is Birthday.  Our sponsor is Sassy Studio and we were all lucky to be given an image of our choosing to work with.  I chose France Honey for my card:

She has been coloured with my Copics.  The papers are Carta Bella Paris Girl in digital format.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. I have used SB Nesties for the sentiment matting.  The Eiffel Tower and border are made with Dienamics dies and the corner is a Whimsy Die.  The black gems are from my stash.  I have followed the sketch over at Cupcake Craft Challenge - love this layout!!  Sassy Studio will be giving the lucky winner 4 digi images of their choice so well worth entering your card!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Sketch
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Think Pink
The Crazy Challenge - Birthday
Eclectic Ellapu - Girly
Glitter n Sparkle - Female Cards

Have you got anything nice planned for the weekend?  We are having a quiet one, dreaded housework this morning followed by a bit of shopping then it will be crafty play time I guess!  Whatever you are doing have a good one!  Thank you for looking and take care xx
