Ruth's birthday card #2

We're still baking in the sun here, we're so not used to having temperatures every day in the mid-twenties and above, and it's horrible trying to sleep at night.  Down a few degrees would suit me just fine!  Shouldn't complain really, don't think we had any 'summer' at all last year :)

This is another card for my sister.  I'd got this stamp a while back for the intention of using it for her birthday card and very nearly forgot about it!  Coloured with copics and lots of sparkle added to the girlies' dresses, cupcakes and champagne.

Layout from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #215
Colour combo from Play Date Cafe #191
Joanna Sheen challenge - citrus colours
Marker Pop #26 - anything goes
Charisma Cardz #28 - girly
