Birthday Wishes

This weeks Bellariffic Fridays theme was a sketch - I do love a good sketch!  I needed a birthday card so with a sketch & theme already picked this card came together super quick (well once I chose the paper, lets be honest it takes time to go through all the paper packs!)

For my card I inked up Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Ava Love to Celebrate.  The image is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink onto bella's bestest cs and coloured with copics.  I paper pieced her dress (shocking I know!)  The ds paper I used is EP's So Happy Together.  The sentiment is from another Stamping Bella image - Ramona Loves Cake.  On the cake I used a yellow atyou spica pen to add the glitter on the cake.  The flowers are MFT's die-namics flower and leaf trio.  The rhinestone centres are clear rhinestones that I coloured with copics to match my paper.  The shading around the image is done with tumbled glass distress ink and a sponge.

Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes and sistah's creations and remember to leave a comment for Em for a chance to win some bella bucks.  Next weeks theme is Birthday Wishes - email your card to Em by Thursday to be included on the Bellariffic Friday Blog roll!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day

copics: E0000, E00, R20, R24, R27, R29, Y11, Y13, E41, E49, E57, E59, YG17

Simply GORGEOUS !! Your interpretation of the sketch is bang on my friend !! I love how you paper pieced her dress and the colour combo of pink, yellow and aqua.

I know you're not one for frosting but the way you decorated this cake makes it look oh so divinei! And I love how you always pull the right colors together, even coloring your clear crystals with copics to match! You are one resourceful babe! Lovely card!
