Birthday Blog Candy Card

Happy Thursday All!!

The card I have to share with you today is one I made for Jo's blog candy give away. She's offering up a bunch of goodies and all you need to do for a chance to win is make a pretty and pink birthday card.

I used one of my new Tilda stamps that Jo sent me for my birthday. She's so cute and perfect for a happy birthday with her little present in hand. I used some printed paper and paper pieced all her clothing. This works for the challenge on Cute Card Thursday which is to use patterned paper. I finished the rest of the image using my Stampin' Write markers. Tilda's wings have been covered in Stickles for some shimmer.

The base of the card is a piece of acetate with rub-ons, which are hard to see in the photo. I paper pierced the main image piece and layered it on a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock. The sentiment is from SU!'s Short and Sweet and was punched with oval punches and attached with a rhinestone brad. I saw the acetate and rub-on idea on Katharina's blog. Her card is much nicer than mine though! :)

Thanks for looking. Hope you're all having a great week. Be sure to check back tomorrow when we post a new challenge on STAMP SOMETHING, we are going to have our first guest designer too! Happy Stamping!! :)
