Some Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday!

This week went by pretty quickly and I'm excited about the fact that it's already Friday! There are two fabulous new challenges over at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something this week. I hope you'll play along with us and share your creations!

The challenge at Just Magnolia is One for the Girls! We want to see you grab those Tilda stamps and make your project nice and girlie! I loved this challenge and had a great time making my princess themed card for a birthday wish for one of my closest friend's daughter's birthday.

I started with a white on white plan, but then found some shiny sliver papers and added those in too. The designer paper is SEI and then I've embossed the sliver paper and layer behind the image to create my own DP. All the edges have been distressed and stitched on the sewing machine. I've colored Tilda with Copics and added lots of Stickles to her dress and accessories, then cut her out and popped her up with foam tape. I've embellished with a pin and pearls, ribbon, cherry blossoms and a gardenia, and sticky pearls.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Papertake Weekly: Shiny, Sparkly, and Special
Paperplay Challenge: Bling and a stamp (late with the challenge)
Your Next Stamp: Cut it out and Pop it up!

Next, I have my card for our challenge at Stamp Something which is celebrate something! We are still in our month long birthday celebration so this week we want to see your projects that are a celebration of a special event. Our sponsor this week is Motivet and the DT have been given stamps to work with to complete their samples.

I've used this sweet image with a cake and have created a birthday card for my same friend's other daughter who also celebrates her birthday this month. I've used BG Kioshi papers and a purple and black combo. The sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I've embellished with lavender cherry blossoms, a gardenia, and Stickles. The sentiment is a sneak peek at a new set being released on Monday, May 17th at Whimsy Stamps! It's an entire set of ticket style sentiments which also includes an empty ticket to add your own sentiment too! We'll be having a new release hop on Monday, hope to see you then!

This card also fits the challenges at:
Going Grey: Animal Theme
Charisma Cards: Sweet Treats

Thanks for coming on over today! I hope you have a fabulous Friday and a really great weekend. Be sure to check out the Whimsy DT blogs over the next few days for a chance at some sneak peeks at our new stamp release!

Happy Stamping,
