Happy Birthday to niece #1

Eclectic Ellapu - Spring or a Sketch

Dream Valley Challenges - Things with Wings

Alphabet Challenge - G for Gorgeous Gowns

I had a fun long weekend since it is Victoria Day  in our neck of the woods or as we say, May 2-4 weekend. Our 1 niece, Maddy, had her birthday on Saturday-she turned 20! Our other niece (on my side), Jade, turned 19 on Sunday. The card above is for Maddy. This is a sketch from Eclectic Ellapu and I was inspired to try this from Fanny Thornton's A to Z about quilting. I did not do any sewing though(It would have been a mess). I was also inspired by the Fairy Tales from Pensuasion and Untethered Realms that I read on the A to Z reading frenzy. I took 4 pieces of paper, one I left as is, 2 I embossed tiny flowers on the yellow card stock and tiny dots on the blue cardstock. The green vellum, I used my cuddlebug. I stamped the fairy who is wearing a great gown created by Gnomes are us ( Anorexic super model divas eat your heart out)  and I coloured her with Gamsol Pencils. I used some soft pastels around Ms. Fairy and I surrounded her with a nice light lilac ribbon and some other ribbon in antique silver/gold. I finished it off with a little bling. Thanks for the inspiration:) Hope you likey, likey:)

  10. Beautiful card, Birgit! Love it! I used to enjoy scrapbooking and making cards with stamps (Stampin' Up), but sadly, that has fallen by the wayside now that writing has taken over every spare moment of my life (not that I'm complaining, it's a good thing!) :)
