Sketch & Stash, and oh the shame of it

Lovely little sketch this time over on Sketch & Stash Challenge and as this is another challenge that I've not taken part in for what feels like months, I thought I'd have a go

Here is the sketch
And here is my card

From the stash, I have used this lovely litttle Sugar Nellie with her birthday cake - I really am embarrassed to think how long she has been neglected.  Coloured with Copics.  The marble background paper is also from an ancient stash, so ancient I have no idea where it came from, and the DP is from a free pack of paper that came with a magazine this summer that I've never used.  Sentiment is Craftwork Cards and Papermania shimmer dots have been languishing in the "pile" for months.

Do you know that feeling - the one you have when you just know you have forgotten something really important but you simply can't put your finger on it?  Then, suddenly, it hits you like a brick wrapped in a wet towel and your stomach drops to the floor in horror?  Yep, I have managed to forget one of my best friend's birthdays.  Nine days ago!  This is going to take some serious grovelling to get over ........ oooh dear.

Hanging my head in shame

We are all only human Squirrel...We all forget something important sometimes. You will have to make a gorgeous card with a big sorry in it and sure all will be ok. Debbiexx
p.s. Your card is ever so sweet, I have an image like this with a girl in a coat and I have not used her for ages either.

Think of it as an opportunity to use those belated Birthday stamps that you've got! I'm sure once she gets one of your gorgeous cards all will be forgiven! Well, maybe a little grovelling! LOL
