Happy birthday, Chloe!

Another 1st birthday card :-) This is for my friend's daughter, Chloe, who turns 1 tomorrow. I've tried several of these shaped cards before but this is the only one that's been worthy of a post! Finally it worked :-)
I've used a Greeting Farm image (Ruby) that I got in a RAK - love it! I'm going to have to get some of these stamps! I've coloured her with my promarkers and trimmed round the edge with some pleated ribbon - it took me forever but I think the effect is worth it. The papers are Pink Parfait (Forever Friends) except the green lettering which is limeade filagree from Doodlebug, cut with the Bang! Zoom! alphabet set using my Bigshot. The various flowers, gems and ribbons come from my stash.
The challenges I'm entering this into are:
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Anything but square
The Crafty Pad - photo inspiration
The ABC Challenge - Z is for zig zag card
And while I'm on the subject of challenges.... I recently won a challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and have been lucky enough to receive three Sugar Nellie images - yeah!!! Keep your eyes peeled cos they'll be on here soon :-)
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
