Happy Twinkling Birthday

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

A happy Tuesday to you all!

And that means it's Twinkling Challenge day! This week we have a Temporary Twinkie. Cathy Cunningham's 9 year old daughter, Brittany has created a fabulous sketch for everyone and one that I couldn't wait to tackle. You can see the sketch over at Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday blog and this week's featured stamper happens to be me! :D


As soon as I saw Brittany's sketch I immediately thought of my decorative scalloped edge scissors. I swear those things have paid for themselves 1o times over! I pulled out my neglected Dress Up Lily stamp set for this card because I needed to make a birthday card this week for a very colorful friend. I stamped Lily out on some watercolor paper, cut her out and layered her on some patterned paper and cardstock for the center piece. I added the bottom scalloped edge to lighten up the hard lines of the square card. I had played with some different ideas for the two horizontal stripes but I thought this sheer ribbon worked best because it didn't detract from the main image.

Please check out the cards the other Twinkies have created with Brittany's sketch - GORGEOUS!! The DT list is, as always, in the bar on the left hand side. Tomorrow I have an easter card for you all. Thank you very much for stopping by today. :D

I love this little girlie! Naturally she is coloured beautifully and I don't believe for a minute that you don't own the scalloped circle nestabilties!! I mean I believe it but what wonderful cutting! You wouldn't want to see mine at all without nestabilties and yes, I am too spoiled......but then again can we ever be too spoiled??!!
