Happy Birthday Sweet Stampin! :)




Its a really special week this week over at Sweet Stampin - its our 2nd Birthday!! Woo Hoo! :) So our theme this week is 'Anything Birthday'.  We have fabulous sponsors and prizes this week both for entries to the challenge and random commentors candy too!

To celebrate there are prizes from Saturated Canary, who generously gave us some images to play with this week, and also prizes from  Crafty Sentiments DesignsMy Creative ClassroomPrairie Fairy DesignsThe Craft Room and Tiddly Inks.  Whew!.. What a brilliant selection of prizes and lots of chances to win.

So we would LOVE to see your birthday related creations and hopefully you get time to visit some of the other DT's fabulous work, and dont forget, if you leave comments, there are random prizes for that too.

For my card, I have used the Saturated Canary image Zorana and followed closely the sketch from Bling it On. I distressed and hand-stitched Prima Papers and then hand-beaded the MS doily punch borders.  I used Roses from WOC, and then hand-beaded the pearl drapes in between.  I did take quite a long time on this card, but I really enjoyed making it and found the image just wonderful to colour.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Bling it On - Great sketch
Paper Sundaes - Use a digi.
Craft Your Days Away - Embellishment bingo - I have used Pearls, Flowers, Ribbon.  But 2 pins crept in when wasnt looking :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope everyone has a smashing weekend,

The shine in her hair is wonderful as is your dimensional colouring of the dress folds. I love your use of pearls & beads & the way your doily edging is echoed by the latter. The colours are just terrific & your little touches of green superbly enhance the whole.
