Sunday Sketch & Stamp 17: Happy Birthday Mum!

Happy Sunday everyone!

It's time for a new challenge over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp. We have a fab sketch designed by the talented Arianne and our sponsor this fortnight is Digital Delights by Louby Lou who have generously donated a $10 gift certificate to use in their Digital Delights store!

Today is my mum's birthday, and this is her birthday card - HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUM!  I used this wonderful Sugar Nellie stamp called 'A Good Book' which I've had for a long time, but never inked up - oops *blush*!  It's appropriate for mum as she's a real bookworm!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Cute Card Thursday ... Challenge 89 Swirly Girly : They want to see cards/projects that are for the girls! They can include anything that is particularly girly...for example your image, colour combo, flowers, ribbon, bling and even swirls....the more girly the better.

2. Stamp Something ... Glitzy Somethings : Add bling to your creation. (It does say on the challenge blog that you can make a holiday card or winter card or even a card for New's Years, so if my birthday card doesn't count, then just scrub me off!).

Thanks for popping by, and don't forget to pop back on Thursday, as Your Next Stamp is having another blog hop!
