Stef's 35th Birthday candy :-)

Stef ,, aka Glitterbabe is celebrating her 35th + birthday and will be giving one lucky person all these gorgeous goodies !! You have to be quick tho ,,, the draw will be drawn tomorrow !! :-)

I am keeping everything crossed :-)

Lili of the Valley Challenge

I made this card following Bev's fab sketch on the Lili of the Valley Challenge :-) This stamp was a gift from my lovely friends Joey and Scoopy Sue ( they bought me several for my B'day ) and this is the fist inking :-) Isn't this a cute image :-)

I coloured with copics and added stickles everywhere. the sky was coloured with Pebbles Inc pearlescent chalk from Simon Says Stamp which looks lovely IRL. the papers are from a Basic Grey Green at Heart paper pack ,, I love the vibrant colours in this set. The flowers are prima and the central one is from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprayed with Glimmer Mist the ribbon and charm are from my stash.
The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set and here is where I had a happy accident ! I chalked the sentiment with same chalk as the sky and reached for the sealant ,, and instead picked up the spray adhesive ! so I sprinkled it with fine glitter and now I have a fab sparkly sentiment !! I think this would be a good idea for all those lovely fairytale images :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

This one is called Curtsy Princess Tilda and I bought her from Simon Says Stamp superstore ,,the website is temporarily closed so I will have to get links later :-)

I coloured the image wirh copics and added ultrafine glitter to her dress and shoes,, all Princesses HAVE to have a sparkly frock :-) the papers are from a new Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby paper pack.
