Happy Birthday Sammy

It's my youngest niece's birthday on Tuesday and this is the card I've made for her. It also fits with two challenges as I've used the sketch challenge by Nikki from A Spoon Full of Sugar and the colour challenge from Colour Create of hot pink, dusky pink and ice chocolate. The main image is a Rubber Romance stamp which I've stamped in black Memento then shaded with Pro Markers. I've used Labels 8 Nestabilities and to cut it out then layered into dusky pink Bazill card. I've embossed the jaunty angle piece of brown card with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. The two buttons are from a Papermania set of stamps which I've stamped directly onto the card and then shaded with Pro Markers. I've then added thread through the centre of the button images. The charm is from a set I picked up from one of those cheap book shops.

You can see the charm a little easier on this shot. The flowers have a small brown brad in the centre and the paper is Basic Grey that I've swiped Vintage Photo distress ink around the edge.
So where has this week end gone ! I can't believe it's Sunday night already. I've not been any where today and it's been great. Don't you just love doing your shopping on the internet, it's just a pity they don't want to unpack it and put it away too !
Thanks for looking.
