This is a bit different from my normal cards. I've used an image I choose from Stitchy Bear Stamps after winning a voucher for the store by displaying the digi badge for the 1st brithday badge at Stitchy Bear Stamps.



The papers, sentiment, ribbon and card candy are all from a Craftwork Cards goodie bag. The digi image is coloured in with Promarkers.
