Mmmmmm, Birthday Cake!

Hello again everyone!
Here I am with another card I made for my Sister-In-Law to give to her Father-In-Law. He's actually celebrating the big 60, but he's got the hump about it so I wasn't allowed to mention it on the card! Why have the hump, any excuse for a party I say, lol! Anyway, I decided to use this stamp, it's Chef Hamish by Sugar Nellie. He's just soooo cute isn't he! I then thought "I wonder what the Sugar Nellie Challenge is this week?" and it was this fantastic sketch by Kathy (Challenge 22), so I'm going to enter this card in the Sugar Bowl Challenge this week. I used an 8 x 8 inch card from Craftwork Cards and I'm really chuffed with the result. I love this card, and loved making it, as I do most my cards, lol! So, what do you think?...

I'm really,really happy with this card, I hope it cheers the recipient up too!!
Card ingredients are:
Image: Sugar Nellie Chef Hamish and Magnolia Cowberry Muffin Cake
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards Oh My Words! Birthday Circles and Anita's Happy Birthday stamp (inside of card)
Papers: Daisy Bucket In The Meadow Finley and Doodlebug Choco Dot, Spring Dot and Soda Shoppe Dot
Card: Core d'inations Brownie
Pearls: from stash

I hope the Sugar Bowl like my card too, fingers crossed. I was really, really pleased with the colouring on Hamish, I love my copics and feel like I'm getting the hang of them now. I recommend them 110%, just on case you're thinking of buying some new tools!
See you soon everyone...
