Birthday Wishes

My little girl's 10th birthday is coming up soon, and this darling Magnolia girl just reminded me of her when she was still little. She's so cute with her little pigtails and pretty dress! I love how feminine this My Mind's Eye paper is and the glitter accents on the paper are great too!

I cut out a scalloped shape out of vellum just because I couldn't fully cover up the beautiful paper. I used the Designed to Delight spring cupcake and used my Copic markers and watercolor pencils to color everything in. Then I added some star dust stickles, pearls, and flowers.

I printed out the Birthday Wishes on vellum, used an EK Success border punch, and finished it off with some silver twine and flowers.

Challenges that inspired me:
Birthday Sundaes - shaped card
Crazy 4 Challenges - add twine, floss, string, etc.
Designed to Delight - orange and pink
Paper Sundaes - easel card
My Craft Spot - how sweet it is
Getting Cricky - faces
Magnolia-Licious - color & image challenge
Crafty Creations - use anything sparkly

Hope you're all having an awesome day!
