Sparkly Birthday Card

My Crafting New Years Resolution is to post more often on my blog. Now I was going to challenge myself to post every day but for me that's totally unrealistic so just for starters I'll try for more often than once a week!! now that shouldn't be hard . . . . . . . should it??

In my first challenge for 2011 I've chosen to use the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl which is to celebrate their 2nd birthday & two lucky winners can win some fab prizes.

I've used the super cute Dress Up Maggie which is still one of my favorite Sugar Nellie images. I've coloured her using copics & have blinged her up with stickles for her boa & gold liquid pearls for her necklace.

The cardstock is Bazzill Basics (I have loads of this & am determined to use it up) & the paper is from Dovecraft. I didn't want to cover the paper so have used a small glitter oval as the backdrop & the squares in the DP as part of the sketch.

The tiny pink pearls, ribbon & pom pom thread are from my stash & I've made the little ribbon flower from a roll end of ribbon.

I saw the little sentiment banner on Debby's blog & thought it would suit this card perfectly.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges

Stamp Something - Glitter

Totally Papercraft - Time to party
