Crafting When We Can Challenges #22 - 1 image, 2 ribbons, 3 buttons

Everyone's feeling better now, and things are back to normal so here is my card for Challenge 22 over at Crafting When We Can Challenges.  Our wonderful sponsor this challenge is 

and were were given our choice of image.  The image I chose was Birthday Girl by Max, I love the cute dungarees she is wearing and the careful way she is carrying her precious cupcake.

The papers are from a 360 page paper pack by K & Co. (love all the papers in this stack), the ribbons are from Craft Den the buttons are from my stash. The image is coloured with Promarker and Copics.  Edges of the Tim Holtz mat were distressed with DI, bundled sage, it doesn't look as scruffy IRL. 

I made this card while looking out at my wet, overgrown garden from the attic (my bedroom).  I haven't got my desk up there yet (it's still in the box in the garage) but I do have a shelf wide enough to work on and after moving all my OH's stuff I managed to clear a space for my craft mat so slowly but surely I'm getting there.  This year will be my year and I'm determined to get some space back from the OH and the kids.

Hop on over to the Challenge blog and leave your project with the blue froggy.
