Little Red Riding Hood

Good Morning all!! Isn't it a gorgeous day!! I've got all the windows open, washing on the line, birds tweeting and card made. What more does a girl need lol.

Well my card this morning is for my baby girl Emily.  It's her birthday on Saturday and she is leaving her teens behind.  20 years, where on earth has that gone!!  Then she's off back to Uni in Lincoln Sunday, boo hoo!!

As soon as I saw this image'To Grandmother's House by Mo Manning' I knew I had to  buy it.  This is why.

Pic of Emily aged about 5 dressed up for World Book Day at Primary School when they had to go in as a Fairy Tale Character.

Image coloured with Promarkers
Memory Box Cloud Dies
Sentiment Whimsy Stamps
Ribbon from Hobbycraft

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Mo's Digital Challenge - Anything Goes
LiaStampz - 3Rs Red, Ribbon and Rhinestones

Love the way you have dotty embossed clouds to pick up the pattern in the white spotted red paper! Emily looks a treat in the photo & what a delightful way to use the idea for a card to give her now she's 15 years older!!
