Now for my card I have used the gorgeous FREE Emma Canning Cupcake image (which can be found HERE) and coloured her with Promarkers ..... which I haven't used for ages and actually had a "aaarrrgggghhhhh"moment as couldn't remember "how do you colour with these?!?!?" So colouring the image actually took me a while as I had to remember all the blending techniques again. Note to self ..... do more colouring in 2013!

Cuttlebug Star die
Cuttlebug hearts embossing holder
Sentiment: found in a drawer when having a clear out!
Ribbon offcuts which I have been hoarding!

Remember you can get the FREE Emma Canning image too by joining in with the Polka Doodles blog hop and this weeks challenge. So how can you resist this cutie?

I am offering the everso versatile and I can't live without, Studio 12 Picknix CD as my blog candy prize, so if you want a chance to win this CD, please leave a comment on this post and I will draw the winner on Sunday 20th January 2013.
