polkadoodle challenge card!!!!

Morning peeps!!!! well there is another boiling hot day forecast !!!! i hope it isn't a muggy one though as I am sooo tired!! mo and I have been up 4 nights in a row with asthma now and I am starting to feel like my batteries are running on empty!!!!!
I actually managed to get my polkadoodle challenge card done last night though!!!
This one is for my friend kelly who is turning 30 next week, I thought it was quite funny as I was just sitting in my crafty garage making it with my computer on (i always have my computer out there to chat with my friends oin the cricut mb!!!!) and she popped up on my facebook!!!! she must of known I was thinking of her!!!!
I used one of Lily-boo’s boutique printable images
(celebration collection) for the litle cupcake and resized it in paint shop pro to make it 2" so it would cut out nicely with my fiskars squeeze punch!! I coloured it with m copics, 3d glossed the strawberry and stickled the pink frosting, the photo came up a bit pants but it looks yummy in "real life"!!! lol!!!
I made my landscape card base with some pink card and matted some pretty retro -ish pink summery papers I had in my stash. I cut a little rectangle of the happy birthday paper from the same stack and did a few white doodle lines on it. I inked the edges of the pinks a bit to lift them from the base and used some anitas glittery lines for the 'ribbon' bit ( oooh, if you haven't tried them you should get some, they are sticker glittery lines that come on a little sheet and they are fab to use) I stamped a little 'celebrate' on the black square and added a couple of pink card candy's to bling it up a little more ( kelly is actually excited about turning 30!! i was in complete denial when i turned 30!!!lol!!!)
I like this card, it is bright and cheery!!! I had better go and get ready for work now!! Mo has his 2nd little visit to school today and he seems to be quite looking forward to it today ( he was a little quiet about it all last night and didn't fancy it but has cheered up about it this morning so thats a relief!!)
Thankyou for popping in!!!!!!
