A sweet birthday.

This month, over at Patties Creations, the theme is...
An easy one!
I used 3 of Patties images...
lollipop jar, bubblegum machine and chocolate chip cookie jar.

I made this card for a friend at work - Louise. 
She has a little (ok, not so little!) stash of sweeties hidden away in a cupboard at work,
so I thought this would suit her down to the ground! 
I printed off each image, coloured with my promarkers
and carefully fussy-cut around each one so i could lay them exactly where 
I wanted them on my card. 
The bubblegum machine has been popped up slightly on 3d foam squares.
The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat
and I found a similar font on my pc, to create her name.
I drew a line behind the sweetie jars, to "ground" them
and added some shadows with my grey promarker.
After matting and layering on a pink spotty background, I hand-drew
a faux-stitched edge.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
