Birthday Angel and New Candy!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Did you watch Eurovision last night? It's been a load of tosh for years, right? Yet yesterday I have to admit that I actually enjoyed watching it!! I had it on whilst making a few cards but I frequently stopped to look at the screen. My favourites were Estonia and Iceland, but I also liked the UK entry and others such as Malta. Norway's entry was not my cup of tea and I am surprised that it won. Well done UK for getting to a very respectable number 5. Missed Terry's banter though, not the same without him, Terry Wogan IS Eurovision and Eurovision = Terry Wogan.

Anyway, back to crafting. It's my little angels birthday next week and what a perfect stamp I had to use, our very own Delectable Angel Annie, couldn't wish for a more apt image. I went all out on this one, and filled it with sparkly and glittery elements. It's a big card at A5.

Here are some close-ups:
