A Lovely Sunny Day!

Wherever you are I hope is sunny and bright as mine is in this little corner of Essex. I have a lovely view from my window and I can see many yachts out on the river and there's not a cloud in the sky.

Our theme this week on the One Stitch At A Time challenge blog is 'Use A Digi' Our super prize this month is seven digi images and is sponsored by our own Stitchy Bear.

For my card this week I chose to use Panda Bear Designs digi pack called Birthday Surprise and you can find it here. This is such a brilliant pack and prints beautifully, no fancy photo printing just some good paper. I was really please with the intensity of the colours and they're perfect for children's cards.  I decided to create a birthday party invitation.

I created an invitation in Open Office (brilliant program and free too!) and cut it out with a Spellbinders die. I've had the cupcake die from Marianne die for ages but it was perfect for my invite. I pulled apart s white blossom from Wild Orchid and used a Promarker to colour it to a similar flower on the paper. Now to bake some cakes for my party!

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

You wouldn't need to be a child to be very excited about being invited to This party Jennie. The beautiful vibrant colours, cupcake and very pretty flowers hold all the promise of a joyful and very fun filled occasion. I have no doubt that the cupcakes you are now baking will be every bit as beautiful as this party invitation.
Love Ingrid xxx ♥ ♥ ♥
