Jayarna Birthday card

Please forgive my absence for the last few weeks or so ... The Christmas and New Year period just seems to get busier and busier with less and less time to do everything!!
I've spent the weekend making cards for various birthday etc and as much as I might plan to sit and do this I hardly ever get the chance ... but this weekend I had to get 3 birthday cards and a baby card made and I have managed all but one birthday card so far ....

So .. this is the first card I 'whipped up'
 It's for Bella's friend, Jayarna, who lives next door and it was her 8th birthday yesterday.  I already had the image coloured sitting in my stash thank goodness lol.  I just love my gorgjuss girls stamps and I coloured her with my trusty copics and found some beautiful papers by Pink Paislee called Vintage Vogue that I bought some time ago because I just fell so in love with them ... I've never coloured the right stamp to match them and I'm glad that this one came together so well with them.

I love it when a card just comes together (I did have the help of an old sketch from "I need a sketch") so I can't take all the credit lol.

Jayarna loved it and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out ... 
So for now I'm off to try and find some challenges to enter this into ...
