Charlee's 1st birthday card

Hi everyone, seems like a long time since I have posted a card which has not been scheduled.

I have had a very busy time lately. Last week my husband and I were on holiday from work but all our plans changed since my dad has been in and out of hospital and back in again. I am hoping to get him home tomorrow. Visiting hospital takes up so much time, by the time I get home it's tidy up time and preparing for the next day. Stupidly we decided to decorate our bedroom, which is now partly done but the house appears to be in turmoil with pictures and boxed items around the house. Never mind it can only get better!
Today it was back to work for a rest. 

Enough waffling and on to my card. I made this for my niece's daughter who will be one tomorrow. 

I used A Papercraft Essential paper stack, Me to You stamps, Promarkers, chalks, Nesties & flower embossing folder.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

I hope to be back catching up with everyone's blogs soon, I am missing the inspiration.
