What a star!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all OK. Just a quick post from me today and only one card as I've not been feeling too well this week and have had no energy. This card I made at the weekend but have only felt well enough to post today. Also, I just wanted to say how pleased I was that so many of you have entered my blog candy, I'm really pleased you like what I've put up for grabs. I will get round and visit all of you who have become followers as I'd love to see your blogs but it might not be til the end of the week when I'm feeling a bit better.

Anyway, enough rambling and onto my card. It's a birthday card for my friend's little boy. The image is of course Forever Friends and I cut off the sentiment from the main image and used separately. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and paper pieced the cake. The papers are by Piggy Tales I think. I used the sketch by Unscripted Sketches which I thought was quite an unusual one so I had fun using it- thanks, girls! I was really pleased with the little star embellishment which I decorated to match the background papers. The top star was actually pink but I coloured it brown with my copics to match! Then I finished off with a little trail of gems to represent a shooting star.

Here is a little close up of my FF bear and the little bit of paper piecing around the cake. I hope to be back with a few more cards next week when I'm feeling a bit better and, if I'm feeling well enough to go, tales of a very exciting night out!!!!!

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Kaboodle- "Spots and stripes"

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Forever Friends); Papers (Piggy Tales); Assorted cardstock; Watercolour pencils; Copics; Star (The Works); Gems (Ebay)
