Pollycraft Challenge - Male Birthday Card

Good morning crafters! Here is the card I've made for the Pollycraft challenge which is 'make a male birthday card!'
I had some cute downloads from Pollycraft which I hadn't got round to using so I used one of these for my card. OK, so it's Bessie with cake but I thought it would make a cute baby boy card!

I coloured the image with Pro Markers and put white glitter on the white areas, I put foam pads on the back of the cake to make the image a little more 3D.
The papers were all magazine freebies, the sentiment was done on the computer using French Script, I love this font and usually use it for all my inserts! The ribbon was a freebie which came with Dylan's PJ's from Primark lol!!
Congratulations to the new DT members at Pollycraft! I recognise all of the names there so well done ladies, can't wait to see your DT cards in the New Year!
Just a quick add-on, we took Dylan to see the nursery yesterday and he loved it so hopefully he will settle in well!
Love Becky xx
