Birthday Girl

My inspiration for this card came from Kitty Frampton's cards in Making Cards magazine.  She used images and papers that came with the magazine but I decided to get my Crafter's Companion Humphrey's Corner stamps out and stamp my image and colour it with ProMarkers.


I added lots of glitter to her dress and wings and some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the star on her wand and gems on her crown.  I used Kraft card stock and the papers from the magazine along with the sentiment from the Humphrey's Corner stamp set cut out with a Spellbinders banner die.


The scalloped border is a Fiskars edge punch and the ribbon is from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Ppinkydols Challenge 3 - Anything Goes or Make It Girly
My Sheri Crafts Challenge 142 - Birthday Celebrations!
Sparkles Monthly Challenge 60 - Things with Wings
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge 103 - Must Use Pink
