Penny Black + Cute Thursday + Sketch Saturday

Isn't this sunshine wonderful?  We woke up this morning to a thin covering of snow that positively sparkled in the sun.  It looked like the world had been sprinkled in glamour dust!

And so to today's card - I hope this one will fit the following three challenges:
Sketch Saturday Challenge Week 88
Penny Black Saturday Challenge Someone Special (Week 88) and
Cute Card Thursday Blooming Gorgeous (Challenge 97)

I made this with my new sister-in-law in mind, it's her first birthday as a member of the family in a few days time.

I've used Penny Black's adorable cat (I think the stamp is called You're The Best but I forgot to check) and he's coloured with Copics and ProMarkers.  Papers are from K&Co - Tim Coffey's Daffodils pad and Daisies pad.  I love these bright, zesty, springy colours.  Flowers, spacers and sparkly gems are from stash and tiny golden brads are Woodware.  Sentiment is Personal Impressions.  Flourishes done with Sizzix dies.

Thanks for popping over to see me, always fab to have friends round!
Hugs, Squirrel xx
