Happy Days

Here's a bright, colourful birthday card that I really enjoyed making today...

I used an image from a set of 3 from DigiStamp Boutique called Maddie Happy Days.
I coloured Maddie with promarkers, then fussy cut her out.
I wanted a fun back-drop for her so decided to use the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge, adding candles (made from flattened straws) and balloons.
I used 4 different papers from the same pad (Doodlebug's Hello Sunshine).

I'd like to enter this card at:
Sketch Saturday - sketch #473
DigiStamp Boutique - July customer competition 
Passion for Promarkers - use a minimum of 3 patterned papers
Seize the Birthday - no topping

Thanks for stopping by today xx
