It's behind you!

It was my niece's 11th birthday yesterday, and I was hard put to think of something suitable for her card. In the past she's been into tropical fish, Dora the Explorer, Hello Kitty, and Moshi Monsters, but this year's craze is loom bands in a big and exclusive way. Really not great for a card subject.

I consulted MIL about it, and she came up with the brilliant idea of the school pantomime "Aladdin trouble" {groan} in which my niece has been playing Widow Twankey - and also Widow Twinkey for some complicated reason that I didn't fully get my head around.

What a great excuse to use my brand new Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden 6"x6" paper pack! With the aid of on-line colouring pages, my Copic markers and some home printed greetings, my niece got a card which she and her little friend pronounced as "cool". And if that isn't high praise from a pair of tweens, I don't know what is.

Here is the inside. I couldn't resist bringing pantomime humour in somehow.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: anything goes
Cute Card Thursday: pretty papers
Sketch Saturday: this sketch
