It's My Party and I will cry if I want to

Good morning well just the birds are still singing and the washing is blowing nicely on the line. Oh it is Friday so that means we are about to start the weekend and hey ho it is a Bank Holiday here in the UK. Shame so many shops open so lots of people have to work them. Guess gone are the days when Bank Holidays meant spending the time with Family if nice maybe a picnic at the local park.
Well what ever you get up to maybe you have time for a challenge. If so CRAFTY CATZ challenge starts to day and the title of my post may look strange but it a song do you remember it. 
The lovely talented Nina got to pick and she would like you to create a card 

We have 2 sponsors this week

2 great prizes up for grabs  so before you skip off to hum your song and dig out your images let me show you my card. I just love this song by Lesley Gore although I did have to look up her name could i think of it when I needed it but gosh I could sing the words. Ok I wont as we have sun and i dont want it raining.

I used one of my neglected Lili of the valley stamp but I do love the attitude this little one has. Dont people know that the party girl gets her way.

Close up of the image

I have used papermania paper. Coloured the image with promarkers and used distressed inks on the edge of the card. Diecut flowers. Ribbon from stash. Papermania sentiment.

So what better way than to celebrate with our challenge. So our theme this week is BIRTHDAYS. Yes a nice easy one as we all know someone that will be having a birthday and if not a stock card is alway handy.
For my card I used a image from our sponsor and i picked this one because it has the correct number of candles on the cake. Wonder if he is going to share it with us. Looks like a nice yummy chocolate cake too.

I think the papers are all from a magazine on of those pads they where giving away as the front cover is missing but they are lovely quality. M.S round the page punch but just did a line. Whispers Stamp sentiment. New Memory Box star circle but only used a section. Satin Ribbon from a local shop. Candy dots. All card from Papermill..
