A Frozen 4th birthday

It's hard to believe but my darling granddaughter Daisy was 4 on Saturday and she celebrated with a "Frozen" party. It was such a wonderful day and she had a party with her friends in a local leisure centre followed by a family tea party at her home. 
I know that I teased you with a sneak peek of the cake I made so here it is on the table at the party
There were 24 littles one and this was the calm before the storm in the party room at the centre
The place settings my daughter bought were delightful
and here are the kids enjoying their feast including yummy fresh fruit kebabs for pudding.
They enjoyed pass the parcel too
Daisy blew out her candles with glee.
After her party with her friends we had another celebration at her home with the family which included more lovely food and more candle blowing

 I managed to get some really great quality models from Amazon, the perfect size to use for a cake and for Daisy to have afterwards to play with.
I cut lots of snowflakes out of icing and made a frozen river.

I also made some snowballs and created a snowy scene.

For her card I needed a focal and as I was about to throw away the packaging from the models I spotted some Elsa and Anna images I could use.
I also decided to recreate the colours for the background of my card using Fresco paints.
I used a brayer to achieve the colours and textures
I made my focal...adding the image which I fussy cut out to my brayered backing card.

This is her card. I hand stamped the sentiment and added lots of die cuts.

I had a tiny piece of packaging left so I made a tag using paints and a snowflake stamp.
which looked like this

and here is the card and pressie all wrapped..
I would like to enter my card and tag into the following challenges;
