For the Kids

I am so late with this post, I swear my time management skills are getting worse... or maybe I just have more and more to do?!  Either way, this should have been posted yesterday when the new challenge started over at Di's Digis with the theme "For the Kids", where we'd like to see a card with an image of a child or children, or a card or project for a child or children.
I have been spending a lot of time making a cake for MY child... it is Chris's 30th birthday tomorrow... and he's my BABY!... he had a party yesterday with a circus/carnival theme so I've been caking it up for days!!
Here's my card for the challenge
I've used one of Di's newer images, she's been drawing up some real cuties recently... you can get this one, "A Little Something" from here.  I coloured with Copics, adding some detail with Prismacolor pencils and some Ice Blue Stickles to the ribbon.
I followed the sketch from Digi Sketch challenge, though my image does take up a bit more of the space than on the sketch!  The papers are Kaisercraft and from my stash.  I added sparkly blue star brads, some blue gel pen "faux" stitching and a metal self adhesive "wish" sentiment I've had in my stash forever!  That's it!
I used the same sketch for the inside of the card, of course, it's what i do, lol
I'd like to enter the following challenges: 
Anything Goes

I hope you get a chance to check out the rest of the Design Team Inspiration, and have a go at the challenge.  There's an awesome prize as always, and an extra draw if you use one of Di's cuties
I have to make Chris's birthday card tomorrow, nothing like last minute!  I'll post a picture of his cake when I put up his card
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
