Card challenges & an award

It's my friends daughters birthday tomorrow and I wanted to make a card for her.  I've used Naturals Ivory card as my card base.  I've stamped the letters in Pretty in Pink and Wisteria Wonder from the Letter It stamp set.  The papers are the Flirtatious Designer Papers and the Patterns Designer Paper Series in the new In Colours punched out with the Postage Stamp punch which is fast becoming one of my favourites.  I hope it makes it into the next Main Catalogue.  Ribbon is the White Organza Ribbon which is really pretty and I've finished off the card with some cute buttons.

I try to enter challenges whenever I can as it gets the grey cells going!  So this card is for the following challenges:

Simply Stampin Colour Challenge - Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, Pretty in Pink & Whisper White

Less is More Challenge - Punches or Dies

Sweet Stampin Challenge - 3 in a row - I've chosen Ribbon, Buttons & Spots

I've also been really thrilled to receive the Liebster blog award from Lisa at Dreaming of Creativity

For anyone that doesn't know, the Liebster award is given to inspirational blogs with less than 200 followers.

Liebster is a German word meaning dearest or favourite and the tradition is that I would pass on the award to 5 other blogs that have encouraged, inspired and motivated me. To accept the award here's what you need to do:

1....Thank the person who gave you the award on your blog
2....Link back to that blogger on your blog
3....Post the award to your blog        
4....Pass on the award to 5 of your most valued blogs (less than 200 followers)    
5....Leave a comment on those 5 blogs to let them know.
These are my five picks for this award.  I find each of these ladies very inspiring and wonderful, creative, crafty individuals.
