Stylish birthday

Hello lovely people,

It's time (again!) for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this month is...

SPARKLE AND BLING

This is a theme that I always think will be easy but then I remember how bad I am at this, so once again my sparkle and bling is on the low key side!
I added glamour dust to the bows and frilly bits of present wrappings and some little gems to some of the corners of the DP.


I have wanted this stamp for such a long time but it was always out of stock so I was excited to finally get my hands on it a month or so ago... and then it sat in my 'need to use' box for a little while until I finally got round to using it for this card!


Card recipe;
Image / sentiment: Uptown Girl Posh has a present - Stamping Bella
DP: Yours Truly - Pebbles (available from Hey Little Magpie)

Copic colours;
Skin: E000/00/21/11 & R20
Hair: E53/57/59
Pinks: R81/83/85
Teals: BG0000/000 & BG53/57/09
Ground: N0/1/3/4

If you haven't already done so then head over to In The Pink and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Pink Ladies, including a special guest appearance from a very talented lady...you'll just have to go and see who it is!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,



Challenges I am playing along with;
1.  As You Like It (fave rubber stamp - my newest stamp purchase is usually my current fave and this is especially true with this one as I have wanted it for so long... I think it's going to get used a lot!)
2.  A Creative Romance (anything goes)
