BIG Birthdays at Ladybug Crafts Ink

Hi everyone, the last day of our long bank holiday weekend in the UK is now upon us, I hope you have all enjoyed your celebrations for the Jubilee.
Its time for another challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink and this time the chllenge theme has been chosen by the lovely Tams and she has chosen
Big Birthdays
Now I took this to mean that the creation had to be for a 'big' birthday as in 18, 21, 30, 40 etc so I made this, however I then realised that this is not what she meant, its birthdays and big as the wonderful Tams has a 'big' birthday herself tomorrow (I wont say which one cos after all she is a lady!!! lol...)

All of the design team have used the same image, this fabulous new one which you may have got with the digital crafting magazine which came out a little while ago...  If you dont you'll have to wait a little while as its not in the shop yet and head ladybug (aka Kerry) is still recovering from her daughters wedding lol....

I have coloured the image with copics and used my sewing machine for the stitching.
The papers are Basic Grey Oxford.





I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Try it on Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Lexis Creations - For a Man
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
