You Are The Sunshine in my Life

Today I have another "just because" card.
I loved making this card... I used another of the oh-so-yummy-to-colour images from Di's Digi Designs; this is Sunflower Ted, how cute is he?!  I've coloured with Copics,  I love my Copics for "strong" colour - and I love strong colour :) Fab'n'funky Challenges has Cute and Cuddly as their challenge theme, so I'm entering there and Joanna Sheen has Lots of Layers so I'm entering there too.  Simon Says Challenge is to use some green, I have so I'm in!
Cupcake Inspirations have a great challenge this time around; they want us to pick our favourite Inspirations Cupcake.  I've got sooo many that I love; this is one of them, it's number 172.  I've used this great sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp Sketch.
The sentiment was a freebie from Bizzy Becs, I cut it with a Standard Circle Nestie and inked the edges with Kaiser inks. (Apologies for the fuzzy pic)
The patterned paper is from Kaisercraft's Class Act pad - I just treated myself to half a dozen new Kaisercraft pads (they were on sale at a hard to pass up price, so I didn't "pass up", lol)  The golden yellow textured cardstock and the brown card for matting are from my stash. I cut the horizontal strip with a Dienamics Zig Zag Border die, The Paper Shelter has Punches and or Dies for their challenge, so I'm in.  
The polka dot ribbon is from my stash, Craft Your Passion wants us to use an Odd number of embellies, I've used One, which is an odd number, so I'm entering there; however I've also used One ring/button "thing" so I'm not sure if I qualify.  Not sure if I qualify for Digital Tuesday's Buttons or Bling challenge either - is my ring/thing a button; it WAS in a bag of BUTTONS so I'm thinking yes :-?
The inside of my card is finished very simply with papers the same as the front. By the Cute and Girly, That Craft Place, Catch the Bug, Stamping With The Dragon, Craft Us CrazyPapertake Weekly and Colour Me Copic all have Anything Goes challenges running, so I'm entering them.  I think this card would make a great Mother's Day card, though it's not Mother's Day here until May and I no doubt will have made another card for my Mum by then, so I'm entering the Mother's Day themed challenges at  One Stop Craft Challenge and  Creative Craft Challenges
That's it for today's offering, I'll be back in a day or so -  until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
