Pretty Pink Birthday!

Good morning all and hope that your weekend is going well? Welcome to my new followers - lovely to have you join me! And a big thank you for all the lovely comments. It's a fairly quiet weekend here as daughter busy studying and son gone to a sleepover at his friend's - so a peaceful Sunday morning apart from Tilly the Dog doing her usual Hokey Cokey routine with the back door (i.e. out, in, then out, then back in, then out - you get the picture...!) and Poppy the Cat sat next to me glaring at "that stupid dog"!  And no sign of Spring yet? Tilly and I went for a march across the field and beck at the back of our house - and it was like a quagmire! Of course, she loved it, splashed about in the beck and trampled through all the mud - lovely! So you can imagine what state she was in when we got back! Thank goodness she's short-haired!

Anyway, less waffle from me and a little birthday card to show you.  Nikky Hall at Polkadoodles is at the Harrogate show this weekend - wish I could have got there! And she's got some fantastic crafting goodies for sale! One of the new items on sale is (and in the online store here )
***Digistamp Heaven CD Rom Collection
a cd full of over 150 digi stamps by Emma Canning.  
So I've used a couple of the digi stamps on this cd for this cute birthday card

I've used three digi stamps together (the gifts used twice and then the bunting) and coloured them with promarkers and flexmarkers.

The pretty backing paper is from the Polkadoodles 'CherryBlossomLane' cd.  I've then added some stitching, and some die cuts using Marianne flowers and butterfly (using coredinations card) with some dew drops and gems.  The sheer ribbon is from Joanna Sheen.  So quite a pink and girly one, but could easily be made with more 'masculine' colours and embellies! 
Hope you like it!  
Back soon,  Kim x
