Make a Wish....

I'm baaaack!! LOL! And this time I have a sweet little birthday card for our even sweeter granddaughter, Ava! She turns 7 in March. OK...well, I'm a bit early...but if I know me (and I do!), this darling little card will sit on my counter until 2 days before Ava's birthday and then I'll be scrambling to get to the post office to mail it to Arizona! It's kind of a pattern with me, y'know!! hehehehe!!

So...our new challenge at the Sugar Bowl is to follow this very fun sketch by our ever clever DT sistah, Kiki...with "birthday" as the theme!!


So I gathered my craft supplies and pulled out the cutest little Sugar Nellie fairy stamp called "Make a Wish", and got busy!! I actually turned Kiki's sketch over...and here's what I came up with....


I chose "purple" because Ava loves the Phoenix Sun's pro basketball team...their colors are orange and (you guessed it) purple!! Here's a view from the side...


And, of course, my typical "artsy" view...


Here's a peek at the inside...I decided to make a pocket and tucked a cute little birthday sentiment tag inside!



And now, here's my card "recipe"...
Cardstock: Bordering Blue & Concord Crush (SU)
DP: "Once upon a time" (DCWV)
Sentiments: "Teeny Tiny Wishes" (SU) and inside sentiment is from American Art Stamp
Doohickey die tag: Magnolia
Spellbinders shapabilities "Lotus"
Gold "pearls" & gold ribbon: my stash
At you Spica pens & lots and lots of "waterfall" stickles
Copics: E21, 00, 000, 0000 (skin); R20 (cheeks); E35, 15, 11, YR23, Y23 & 21 (hair); BV04, 02, 01, 00, 000, 0000 (dress, shoes, & wings); YR0000, Y000 & 0000 (star); N1 & NO (shadows).

Now...and this is very cool...how would you like to win a super-duper "mystery prize"? (hehehe!...it's a secret!) That's right! One lucky winner of the Sugar Bowl Challenge (chosen at random) will win this fabby mystery prize!! And all you need to do is make a card featuring at least one Sugar Nellie image (and believe me, there are so many great options to choose from...you can check 'em out at Funky Kits HERE!) So, c'mon, kids!! Let's get crafting!! Oh...but before you do, pop on over to the "Sugar Bowl" HERE and take a peek at the gorgeous cards my DT sistahs have created for you. You're in for a real treat!!

That's it for me...for now, at least! No telling when I'll be back...soon, I bet!! Thanks so much for stopping by for a peek...and, as always, thanks for your sweet comments. They really DO make my day!! Until next time...

Hi Pat....I think we have some psychic link going on here! We both used the same image and mine is for a 5 year old (not a 7 year old) but called....Ava!!

Yours is such a beautiful card. I love the image (of course!) and the colours are divine.
