Birthday Boy

 Well, here we are in April already! Shame about the cold snap after the fantastic spring weather we enjoyed last week, let's hope it's soon over so we can enjoy the warmth and sunshine again. We even had snow yesterday, just flurries here in the SE but definitely snow. 

My card today is for our new challenge over at Crafty Catz, this week it's Janet's turn to host, the optional theme is LOTS OF LAYERS and our  lovely sponsor is DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS

The cute image I used, courtesy of our fab sponsor is Mikey- birthday boy, coloured with Copics and fussy cut. The papers are Doodlebug, background layer is embossed with my much-used birhday words ef, stamped sentiment and die cut candles. 

I used this sketch from Creative Sketchy Girls Challenge

There's plenty more inspiration over on the challenge blog where my teamies have been busy creating some wonderful cards using this sweet sponsor images.

Thanks for visiting

We had the snow as well, in fact was quite a shock waking to a blanket of white. Loving the colour palette of today's Birthday card Chris.
