Who wants some Copics? and Henry is 3

We were set a DT challenge at Creative Card Crew to create a card for a 3 year old girl. Now, I don't really do children's cards so I found this so hard to do. For a start, no princess images and all my fairies were a bit too grown up.

So, I altered Henry Mouse from Whiff of Joy so that his cupcake had 3 candles on it. I was pleased with the way that turned out. Then I figured, if it is pink and sparkles it'd probably be okay for a 3 year old girl.

I used the sketch layout that was on a challenge blog a few months ago. I just love this layout but I can't remember which challenge it was from now. To show all the sparkles on the glitter card and the stickles on the image I had to lie the card down flat.

Don't you just love that Inkadinkado stamped sentiment on the inside - how cute is that?

Now, those of you following the blog candy hop that Tasha has put together are probably dying to get your hands on this fantastic stash aren't you? I'm sure you are, because everyone seems to be keeping a bit quiet about it (I haven't seen many people telling others) lol! What are you all like? ;o)

The blog hop started with Tasha oVer at Millie's Magical Moments where you will find the rules, it was picked up by Joey , then Linda and yesterday it made it's way to Paula.

Now it is my turn to pick it up. Hope you'll go Visit the CreatiVe Card Crew Challenge blog tomorrow for our next challenge. And good luck with the Blog Candy.
