Emily is going to a party...

Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies..

I'm sharing a card with you today that I made with Nikky's gorgeous new image at Polka Doodles...  this is Emily Party - available HERE.

I wanted to use this image straight away... so opted for a design I've used before..  but it's a design I love, so thought you'd not be bored!

Emily is coloured with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers... but when I saw Nikky's own colouring of this image this morning - I didn't want to show mine!!  She's used such depth of colouring.. so my pale pastel colours look somewhat insipid!! LOL!  

I've tried to make my cake frosting sparkly...  (of course..)  then I used my Lil' Inkers Stitched Square die for the main die cut.  I used a little Paper Trey Ink Tiny Tabs die and stamp for the sentiment... a little bit of ribbon and a tiny bit of twine in a bow... and that was Emily ready for her party!  Hope you won't compare mine too harshly with Nikky's...  

Pop over to the Polka Doodles Blog here to see some fabulous ideas!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
