Hayley's Birthday

Hi everyone, it's my SIL's birthday today.....and here is the card I will give her at some stage.
Well actually I will be giving her the card below.  
Originally I had one of Beccy's Place bears on the front but I just did not like the colouring that I had done.  Had it on the bench for a few days and it just did not grow on me so I changed the image.
Now nothing against the image as it is too cute and Beccy shares lots and lots of free wonderful images here.

I have coloured it with my copic pens.

If you haven't guessed, purple is my SIL's favourite colour so that was my starting point.
Then I decided to do another Criss Cross card as the first one was so much fun.
I used green Bazzill card as the base of the card and then covered it with various Blue Edge Combo Papers.
I have distressed all the edges of the Stampin Up Perfect Plum cardstock with the blade of my scissors.
The image is computer generated.

Now off to see what this new week will bring. 
Hope yours is a good one.

I would like to enter into the following challenges:
