1st Birthday Celebration

I seem to stuck in a bit of a pink & blue phase at the moment...but this easel card is for a little girl's first birthday, so I had to go for pastel colours. The image is 'Celebration' by Ladybug & Friends, which I watercoloured to match the My Mind's Eye '29th Street Market' papers. I followed the Create4Fun Challenge sketch...although I did rotate AND flip it...but I think you can still see the basic sketch...just! lol
I used my star and circle Nesties, and embossed the shapes using the Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' and 'Swiss Dots' folders. The number one was cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, the brads are by Papermania, the sentiment stamp is Hero Arts (from the 'Anytime Messages' set), and the satin ribbon was a present from my lovely Secret Santa! :0)

This is your last call for the ABC Christmas Challenge blog hop...here's a link to the first stop...it ends at midnight tonight...but we'll be back with more fun tomorrow, when our first challenge goes live.
