Happy Bugg

A card I made for a collegue who is shortly turning 30. Whilst we want to acknowledge her age I am sure she wont so I made a card (think its called a wiper card) where the number 30 is hidden until you pull the corners. I used a Tiddly Ink digi image called Happy Bugg which can be found Here.  I coloured the bugg with copics and added a little sparkle.

I am going to enter this into this weeks challenge over at Simon Says. They are having a game of bingo and I chose  Brad, sentiment and flower (the flower is only little and was part of the sentiment so hope that is ok) oh and on the paper  :)
