Baby 1st birthday

Hi everyone, I've been a little lax this week blogging, I had a request to make 2 special cards asap, plus the family cards, March is such a busy month in our family, being a large family every month has at least 3 or 4 birthdays but March seems to be, someone to make for everyday. and I am not a quick worker with my cards, I tend to think too much and try this and that before deciding how to do something.

Anyhow, with lovely sunshine at the beginning of the week and cloudy murky weather now, I thought an ideal day to put a Spring colour card here, and this is it.  The cutie Lion is a freebie from colouring-pages  IMAGIXS via the web.  The gorgeous papers are from Pink Petticoat and the sketch I followed is from Sketch Saturday, the ribbon is from The Range.  The bubble oval SVG is from Heather M.  I paper pieced the lion from the PP papers too, then shaded in Photoshop, I also matched the colours of the eyes and mouth to the papers. The lion was decoupaged and the stars were 3D'd, I used glossy accents for the eyes, mouth and the 1. So here it is.

I'll enter the following challenges.
