Happy Birthday!

Our Glitter n Sparkle birthday is coming up
so we would like to make a "Happy Birthday" card this week!

My image this week, is called "cupcake"
and is from "A Stitch Back in Twine."

I didn't want this card to be too girly and sparkly,
so kept with the aqua / brown / white combo, with a little magenta -
seen in my design on the cupcake holder and in the butterflies. 

I spent ages colouring the icing on the cupcake.. I'm still not sure if
 I got it how I really wanted it.... 
and the photograph isn't too good, as I hardly seem to be at home in the daylight hours, 
so had to photograph this after the natural light had gone.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Our nieces birthday

This weeks challenge at Glitter n Sparkle is
"anything goes" again! 

Lacy Sunshine is our sponsor this week - and I have used
"the ultimate creative craft girl LS superhero" image.

I knew this would make a perfect card for our niece, who is soon to be 14!

The image was lovely to colour.
I played about with the background paper...
knowing I wanted the pink star paper and white.
The white shape in the middle was cut from my new die
which I got in The Works.  
(Its a nesting die... set of 6 I think, £5. Bargain!)
ALISHA and 14 were die cut in my bigshot. 
I handcut the bunting.
She loooves bunting. (like me!)

First day at school

What a great challenge over at Patties Creations this month -
"Back to school"
Perfect for my little nephew, who is starting his first day 
in reception, in September...

I used Patties image called "ABCD with characters."
I decoupaged the little pictures, popping them on 3d foam.
I coloured each letter and picture with my alcohol markers
and added some punched stars.
I embossed and inked around the edge of the image and 
added a computer generated sentiment.
