Bugaboo! It's My Quirky Sketch!

Evening everyone! It's my turn to set the theme over on the Quirky Craft's fortnightly Challenge. This time round we are sponsored by the one and only...
who have very kindly offered not 1 not 3 not 5 but 7 digi's to our winner!!
You don't have to use a Bugaboo digi for the challenge, but extra points will go to those of you who do! Bugaboo do a Freebie every Friday so most of you must have a few!
Now, for this our 7th Challenge of the year, I thought we could do something we haven't done for ages, a nice easy...
See, very easy! But for those of you who want something a little more challenging, you can add anything extra to your projects you can find in your stash. (Stash, not trash...Spaghetti rings and stewed cabbage won't do!) As long as we can still see you've used the sketch you can add as many extra embellishments as you like. Flowers, beads, buttons, glitter, staples, die-cuts, sentiments, bows, ribbons, embossing. Turn, twist or reverse the sketch, decoupage the layers, 3D the images, or leave them flat! Just have fun!

For my card, I've used Edward Elephant with present..along with his friendly chick! Love this image and just had to layer him up!
I printed out three Edwards, coloured them all with ProMarkers, used my Nesties on the first image and then cut the remaining images to make layers, the last layer being just Edward and the lid of the box. (For the squeamish, don't look too closely at the little chick~I had to cut his legs off!)
For the flowers I used a mixture of bought white flowers coloured red with ProMarkers and punched out flowers.
The little hearts ribbon I bought specially for this card to go with the hearts already on the papers. All paper by Pink Petticoat. I was hoping the tiny 'snowflakes on the front would look like fireworks at a Birthday Party.
I've used Memory Die-cuts and Martha Stewart's fern punch, added loads of Stickles glitter and tiny pink gems and card candi. In side I've used an oldie, but a goodie and one of my favourites for using on ATCs, Elephant with Balloon which, using a clear background PNG image, I printed straight onto the cloud paper along with the wording.
The Freebie Font I used is called Pea KevinandAmanda Funky (Link always on sidebar) and you can download it HERE
I've made another Bugaboo card, which I'll also add to the challenge and show you a little later!
That's it! Pop over to the Quirky Craft's challenge blog to see what everyone else has made and why not visit their blogs too! Looking forward to seeing all of your fantastic creations very soon!!
Hopefully this is on timer as I'm not here. I'm not dog sitting this time, I'm cat sitting!! (Not quite so lumpy!) Thanks for dropping by!
