An extra large birthday wish

Now onto my second post for today, announcing our new challenge over at Creative Moments. As always we are an Anything Goes challenge blog, but this time we have the optional twist of adding a flag to your card. We are sponsored by the lovely Bugaboo and Torytale for this challenge.

I have used Spring Clyde for my creation and added the flag as part of the sentiment:
I coloured Clyde in using watercolour pencils, which I chose to add water to in some places to blend the colours, but left just as pencil in other areas. I added a starbust background before printing, and then die-cut using a scalloped circle from the X-cut nesting dies. I then layered him onto some bright patterned paper. The numbers were bought from Hobbycraft (this is an A4 card, so the card is actually quite heavy with the numbers on). To make the flag I stamped the sentiment from the new Creative Stamping magazine in green ink, then folded this round a cocktail stick. I then used silver glitter glue to paint the stick and attach to the card base.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp monday - Touchy Feely (glittered numbers are very rough)
Crafting by Designs - Things with Wings
ATSM #246 Anything Goes
Hanna and Friends #275 Summer (summer colours and image)
Simply Create Too #128 Summer Fun
Dradonfly Dreams - Add Sparkle
Animal Friends #51 Animal with wings

I would also like to share an update on my Christmas Fairies too @ 33hr 17:

Here also is Simba, who wanted some new photographs taking:
