LOTV DT Card & Challenges!

Hello everyone, its thats time again where we see a new challenge over at LOTV. Fantastic entries last week, gorgeous creations from all. This weeks challenge is nice and easy "Happy Birthday". I was so excited making this card as I got to go to Ally Pally on sunday and stock up on loads of new stash. I of course met up with the lovely Jacqui, and my CES teamie Julie and blogging buddy Lesley. It was so nice to meet up with Jacqui again and a first with Julie and Lesley.
Today the LOTV Shop are launching the new "ADDITIONS" to their ever growing collection. OMG, these are WOW. I have used the corners (and there are many more selections), Postcard, and Ribbon Stamps. Slowly building up my new collection and am hoping to rehome all of these beauties. This sweet image is called "Little Ballerina & coloured With Copics. The papers are a mix of DaisyD, BG and 7 Gypsies. MS & SU Punches, Prima and W/O Flowers, Stickles and a Viva Pearl Pen. The edges have all been distressed with a Pink & Silver Adirondaak Dabber, more Ally Purchases. The leaves are bazzill which I coloured with the Silver Dabber and the Butterflies have been dotted with a White Gel Pen. Have also used a clear Spica Pen on her dress and Tiara but not shown up very well.

Well I hope all you mums who have children on school holidays are enjoying the break.

Catch the Bug - Four or More layers
