Hey Everyone

How are you?  It was my first day back at work yesterday after having a whole lovely two weeks off - now that is something I could definitely get used too!

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using the oh so sweet Baby Birthday Girl by Whimsy Stamps designed by the fabulous Sylvia Zet.

The recipe for the card is as follows:

Stamp:  Whimsy Stamps - Birthday Baby Girl by Sylvia Zet
Papers:  My Minds Eye - The Sweetest Thing - Lavender
Small Rose Flower Die:  Memory Box - Small Pinwheel
Sentiment Die:  Die-namics - Fish Tail Banner

The image has been coloured with Copics with some 50% Cool Grey Prismacolour Pencil for shading:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 E0000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23 E53
Clothes and Bib:  R85 R83 R81 / E43 E42 E41 E40
Cake:  E35 E31 E30
Icing:  E51 E50 E0000
Flowers:  YT23 YR21 YR20 / YR27 (centre of flower)
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have outlined the image with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink

Here's a close up of the flower arrangement:

And lastly, the arty shot where you will see that I have followed the layout through to the inside of the card:

And that's it.

Thank you for dropping by - any comments are always very much appreciated.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Take care

Hello lovely lady!

I sincerely hope that the old saying is true (better late than never!)
I've hardly turned on my laptop since before Christmas, not because I've enjoyed too much Christmas spirit either! Just had lots of lovely friends and family over to visit and stay :)

Wishing you and your family a very happy, healthy New Year.

Love your card, I did see it yesterday over on the Dies to die for blog..I was stalking Tracy waiting to see the new MFT dies :)

Big hugs to you
Elaine xx

Hazel, just love this card! Utterly gorgeous image, which you've coloured perfectly! Love the flowers, but have to say, I think the glittered take kinda steals the show there! What a lovely backdrop for the blooms!! Delish! The papers are fabby too. All together a really pretty card with a beautifully coloured image. Hugs, Wends xxx
