Sketch Saturday #237

There I was thinking I wouldn't be able to make a card for this week 
BUT
It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from
And I just couldn't miss it!
This week, sponsored by the wonderful

I'm still busy making Christmas cards but this one is a birthday card using the adorable Baby Fairy Kiki from Mo Manning which you can find here.   My papers are Prima Botanical. I have used Nestie framing on my image and added SU punches for the "Happy Birthday" sentiment design.  My card looked better without the sentiment but given the somewhat Christmassy colours, I didn't want it to look like a Christmas card.  The sentiments themselves are all PTI. The grey flowers are Recollections and my Mum made the crochet ones.  I hope to be back soon with more Christmas cards but in the meantime, why not stop by my teamies' blogs, share some love and then come along and play with us this week.





I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Pencil  who have an Anything Goes theme and I chose the lovely colour theme of Burgunday, Grey and Cream from CR84FN68.
