TSG43: Sparkly Birthday

Monday, February 22, 2010

Good Morning!

We had such great weather this weekend! Oh my, they were such beautiful days! It almost felt like Spring here! But I hear it will be short-lived because we're expecting snow again this week. :( Oh well. It was nice while it lasted.

This week's There She Goes (TSC43) challenge is all about birthday SPARKLE!! We want to see you create a birthday card with all the sparkle and bling that should be on a birthday card!

I just purchased this yummy (and sparkly) paper from a My Mind's Eye paper stack I found at Michaels recently. It's soooo sparkly and colorful! Such beautiful paper needed an equally stunning image, so I used Miss Cow from the ROFL Taglines set. She's so sassy lying there in her birthday suit! I forgot to photograph the inside of the card, but there's a Happy Birthday sentiment on the inside just to confirm that it's really a birthday card. :)

Miss Cow was colored with reinkers and an aquapainter brush on Strathmore Bristol Vellum and the designer paper was cut in a back gammon board style of pattern and machine stitched in place.

If you'd like to have a go creating your own sparkly birthday card, then all you have to do is leave a like to where ever it is you've uploaded it on the challenge post in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post. You'll be in the running to win a $5 gift certificate to the TSG store!

Before you go, I just want to wish my sweet friend Kadie a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY today!! She's such an inspirational and dear friend to me and I hope she has a wonderful day! :) Also, here's a picture of my little girl at the mountain while we were tubing yesterday. She's such a ham! :D
