Now we are six!

Good morning, fellow bloggers! Hope you're all fit and well and ready to tackle a new week! It's time for a new challenge at Songbirds , where every fortnight a new challenge is set based upon the title of a song, this time the title is Sixteen going on  Seventeen and we want to see some numbers on your cards! Our sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen, with a fabulous prize to be won!
I've made this card for my grandaughter, who is soon- to- be- six (going on seventeen!!!). I can't believe she's nearly six already, where has that little baby gone! She's grown into a beautiful little person, both inside and out, and I am so proud of her! The Mo Manning image I have used really reminds me of Olivia, she's always writing and drawing - definitely a creative child!
Inside the card I have printed the words to Now I am Six, by AA Milne, it just seemed appropriate!
Hope she likes it as her taste usually runs to pink and pretty, like most of the little girls I know!
Thanks for looking!
Have a good week.
