Boys and Girls Come out to Play with the Digi Divas

Ok I know that sounds wrong on so many levels but honestly it is all very innocent.  The new challenge at Do It with Digis is:
Make a Children's Themed card
- hence the title of my post!! 
Thank you to all of those who joined in our last challenge with Team B - remember to pop in to the challenge blog and see if you were one of our lucky winners or one of our top 3.
So onto the new challenge:
We are lucky to be sponsored this time by Heather Ellis and the Design Team were all lucky enough to get to work with some of Heather's cute Digi images.  Do go along and see what else she has to offer - I'm sure you will be able to find something that you like.
So here is the card I made for this new challenge:
You will see that I have cut out the image, which is coloured with promarkers and placed it on to a die cut shape - this shape is a Marianne Creatables Die and I used some DCWV adhesive papers to cut out the shape - saves so much time when sticking it to the card.  The backing is some patterned vellum that I had in my stash and I have secured it to the card blank with four cream pearl brads in the corners. 
I have used three of Lynne's fabulous digital ticket sentiments which you can buy here and they are also available as clear polymer stamps here.  There are six tickets in the set and I have used three of them.  I have coloured them to match the paper on my die cut.
I added a narrow brown ribbon across the bottom of the card, which I won in a Freebie Friday some time ago at Crafty Ribbons and a couple of brown paper flowers again from my stash.
So there you have it - a card for a child - can't wait to see what you all come up with.  Good luck and have fun.
