Emily is 3....

Hi everyone, sorry I have been a bit absent this week but my studying has been taking up most of my 'free' time when I havent been working....  Just wish this degree was over now!  September can not come soon enough!!

Todays card is made using a TeddyBea image which I coloured with copics and paper pieced.
I used my sewing machine for the stitching.
The butterflies are a Martha Stewart Punch and the sparkly gems are from Ladybug Crafts Ink and are really sparkly in real life.  The corner is a Martha Stewart Photo Corner Punch.





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Divas By Design  - Pink
The Paper Shelter - Birthdays with a Sentiment
Sweet Stamps Blog - Favourite Colour (Gotta be PINK!!!)
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Happy Birthday
