Celebrations

Good Morning!

Well it's another scorcher here so I'm not sure how much crafting I'll get done today. Hoping to get a little blog hopping in though. I hope it's nice where ever you are and that you're enjoying this lovely Tuesday!

Today, Whimsy Stamps is helping to sponsor the challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar and some of our DT members are also Guest Designing, me included. Spoon Full is celebrating their 2 year blogoversary and there are fun prizes and a pretty fun challenge too, just create something with a theme of celebration!

I've created a fun and cheerful happy birthday card using the stamp Water Lily from Whimy's Mythical Collection.

I just got some BG Ambrosia papers so I thought I'd give them a go with this image. I love the red and orange combo and the pretty butterflies on this paper. I've used the sketch from Sketch and Stash for this card with my neglected stash being the buttons and clip for the sentiment.

The image was colored with Copics and then I added some Stickle details to her wings and watering can water. I've stitched all the edges on the papers with the sewing machine and then embellished with flowers, buttons, and ribbons. The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
BG Challenges: Punch It (tag for the sentiment)
The Pink Elephant: Orange

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping,
