TS Monday - Birthday Girl!

Hi all!  Hope everyone had a nice weekend!  I am personally cherishing my weekends more than ever before now that I'm working 8-5 again. ;)  
Our challenge this week is for you to create a Birthday Girl card or project.  Who couldn't use more of these in their stash?!  I had to use this sweetie from the Sweet Birthday Kids set.  I love this set because it has a boy and a girl with two sentiments - all your kiddie birthday card needs in one set!  Gotta love that!  I paper pieced the balloons but the rest of her was colored with copics.  I cut out the sentiment with one of my die-namics.  I also added a Fishtail Flag Stax.  The orange polka dots strips were cut out with my small scallop border die-namics.  A little bling and some ivory jute from the Ribbon Carousel finish off the details.  The sketch is the MFTWSC89.

Here's a close up of the balloons...  I added glossy accents to make them *shine*.

And a peek at the inside.  I inked up only the balloons with some versamagic ink.

Be sure to check out the new releases over at Totally Stampalicious!!!  LOTS of fun stuff!!!

You're picture perfect

Hi all!  I managed to finish a card!  It has been such a BUSY past couple of weeks....  I used the Picture Perfect PI by MFT  for their guest designer challenge.  That is one challenge I try SO hard to enter every month because I totally love their products!  I stamped the frame a second time and cut it out and popped it up on pop dots for extra dimension.  Everything is colored with copics.  I wanted the frame to have a worn wooden look to it.  I used the smallest of the layered rose die-namics, as well as two of the royal leaves, which I cut out of cork, for my embellie.  A few pearls for the flower center and clusters of pearls add more interest.  The green dp strips are the scallop ribbon border just cut in half, then I added some linen thread and tied knots on the ends.  

Inside shot... I used the medium scallop border and the medium leafy flourish.

And a detail shot of the flower embellie...
