A Spoonful of Sugar celebrates birthdays!

Hello everyone!  I hope your week has got off to a good start!  A bit rainy and grey as usual in the UK so my 2 hour commute into London has been more dull than usual!  Hey ho, what ya gonna do?! 

Enough waffle!  Here is my DT card for this week's A Spoonful of Sugar challenge with the theme of "birthday wishes" - a nice easy one to get your stocks levels of these up!  I decided to go all sweet and whimsey and use a Lili of the Valley stamp...

 

Isn't he cute?!  I first coloured him in a lighter brown colour but it was far too wish-washy with this layout so I decided to be brave and go for a grey - still not convinced if it was the right way to go, but Steve seemed to like it so it stays!  [[For now!]]  I love those lickle, ickle iridescent pearls - tooo sweet!  I got mine from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here)


The rest of the DT cards are their usual very high standard and you can see them all here on the challenge blog.  That's it from me today - have a lovely day!

I am entering this card into the Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge.

So cute! I love how you've coloured the bunny.

We have 2 feet of snow and -23 celcius so I'd love a bit of grey and rainy :-)
