"Fairy" Happy Birthday!

Hello my lovelies...and welcome to my little corner of "blogland"!! It seems like ages since our last Sugar Bowl Challenge! Well...come to think of it, it was last year!! hehehe!! So...here's the deal...now that we're well into a new year, I thought it might be a good time to start making some birthday cards for 2012!! And...as luck would have it, the theme for this fortnight's Sugar Bowl Challenge is...wait for it...

BIRTHDAYS!

And my very talented fellow DT Sweetie, Erika, has given us this fabulous sketch to follow...


What a fun sketch, huh? Sooooooo...here's what I came up with...


I chose this precious little Sugar Nellie stamp called "Titania." She's as cute as can be, don'tcha think?! This sweetheart comes from Sugar Nellie's "Home Grown Collection." You can find her HERE at Funky Kits! Here's a bit of a side view...


My card "recipe"...
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler (Stampin' Up)
DPs: "Winterland" (Fancy Pants Designs)
Seam binding - Pear Pizzazz (Stampin' Up)
Metal filagree corners (Wild Orchid Crafts)
Ultra fne glitter, lace, charm, & pearls (my stash)
Sentiment (front) (Whimsy Stamps)
Sentiment (inside) (American Art Stamps)
Liquid Applique
Copics & prismacolor pencils

And a peek at the inside...


Okey dokey...it's time to pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and take a peek at all the sweet deliciousness created by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then, come join us for this fortnight's challenge! One lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a fabulous prize from Sugar Nellie. Once again, our prize for this Sugar Bowl Challenge is....

...your choice of FOUR Sugar Nellie stamps
(increasing to SIX if we have 100+ entries!)...

Oops...I almost forgot...
I've decided to enter this card into the following challenges...

The Stamping Boutique - Birthdays
Cutie Pie Challenges #9 - Ribbons & Lace

Thank you so much for stopping by...and for your sweeeeeet comments! Hugs...until next time....
