Simply Create challenge

I did tell you that once in a while I'd be designing a fancy card. This one is for my darling granddaughter, Sienna, who turned 3 earlier this month. Mom's throwing a big B-Day party, which I unfortunately won't be able to attend. So I just had to go all out with the card. This is a Paper Pretties stamp and I've added ds papers from my stash and bling. First time I used that swirly type bling. The butterflies are an MS punch as is the border punch on the pink mat. And don't you just love that ribbon...from a ribbon club I belonged to a while ago. The sentiment is included with the birthday girl image and it's tied with a bit of floss to the bow. I do wonder if I've stamped the image correctly. Maybe the table was supposed to be down and the little girl up, but I did try to place it that way and it didn't look right to me. I may have to visit their site and look for some examples. Oh, and lots of Copics were used for the coloring. Not sure if the exposure editing I used really show the shading, but I didn't do too badly with it.  Well, anyhow, I'm entering this for Simply Create. In their latest challenge, they ask for bold & bright designs. I think it fits the bill.

My  next blog is going to be for the foodies. I'm heading out to shop for ingredients to make a little Bonko get-together for my dd. I have some yummy recipes to prepare. I'll let you know how it all turns out and take some pics too.

Hugs & Blessings,
