Crafty Catz Challenge 15 - DT 'Birthday Card'

Hello! Hope you are all well and that your snow is on its way out - it has rained quite a bit here today so it is disappearing nicely. Well we have had quite a week, Ben has been poorly with what we thought was laryngitis and on Tuesday I took him back to the doctor as his breathing was still not as good as it should be and the doctor sent us to A & E, apparently it is Croup and that narrows the airways, hence his breathing problems. Anyway to cut a long story short we spent 5 hours on childrens ward, they checked him out, gave him another dose of steroids and sent us home and he is soooooo much better now, in fact so much so he was back in school yesterday after nearly 4 weeks of not going with Christmas, snow closures etc and had a fantastic day, so fingers crossed for the same again today. Well on to cards now and today is a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week I am hosting! I have set the challenge of a birthday card, it can be for male or female, young or old just whatever takes your fancy and I cannot wait to see what you come up with. The card I have made is using a gorgeous Mo Manning image and is for my niece Isabella, she will be 5 at the end of the month. I am also entering this card into Cupcake Challenges 73 which is 'going girly' and Charisma Cardz Challenge 2 which is 'anything new' - the image is my new item.
