PartyHardy - Saturated Canary

Good morning from a snow covered North East. Yep it fell here again last night by the bucket full, but it's slowly starting to melt again.  No moaning today, which makes a change :)  Finally caught up with my washing and all the ironing done too (anyone who knows me knows I hate ironing, so today I feel quite smug that it's all done).
Onto today's card which is another Krista image that I have had for months, 'Partyhardy'.  She looks so sassy I can really see my great niece everytime I look at her, and she will be a great card for my sister to give her on her birthday.

She is cut using one of the new SB Adorning Squares backed by a grand square. I also added a Cheery Lynn Celtic border, Whimsy corner and Joy swirl. Papers are Back to Basics II from Dovecraft (the green looks more lime IRL). Flowers from WOC and pearls and ribbon (behind the border)  from my stash.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with Dusty Concord distress ink applied to the background.

I haven't added anything to the inside yet to allow my sister to choose what she wants.

I am entering the following challenges:-

Thanks for taking the time too look. Hope the weather isn't affecting you too badly and that you have a great weekend

I love the colour combo - I bought these papers at dunelm mill and I've never got round to using them yet! Your flowers embellishments always look lovely and the image is so cute - ideal for a young girl.

Well missus, you've gone and done it again, yet another stunning creation (and boy do you like purple or what?? Don't blame you though, it is the BEST colour in the world EVER). Every time I log in here I am blown away by how gorgeous your cards are, I was just showing Jo your poppy card and saying how much I would love to see your cards in the flesh. Photo's are okay but you can't beat seeing the real thing in the flesh can you? So how's about it kidda, when the weather is better, say in the early springtime, how do you fancy meeting up. Jo suggested a service station or something, half way between us both but I will leave that to you, you are more than welcome in our home (just give us plenty of warning so I can get the cleaners in!!).
Anyhoo, thanks for sharing such a lush card with us and I hope I get to hear from you soon, hope the weather is better 'up there', not too bad here, just tonnes of 'orrible rain!
Take Care,
