Here for the Party!

Good morning, it's my turn to host and choose the theme at Fab'n' Funky this week - I picked- use a 'proper 'stamp - no digis allowed this week.
I made a birthday card featuring one of the 'oldies' from AI stamps- I do love these they really appeal to my sense of humour! I've coloured this beauty up with my copics and paper pieced her dress. The paper was a magazine freebie and the same pattern came in 2sizes- so I used the one with the bigger print for my background square. I wanted to tie in the colours on her hat and balloon so I added the dots- tiny diecut circles, coloured and glossy accents added.. The sentiment is one of many that came with the stamp set.
Got to admit this made a nice change from making Christmas cards this week!

Thanks for stopping by-, it would be great if you have time to join us at Fab'n' Funky- please remember- NO DIGIS!
