Birthday Girl

Happy Sunday!

Hope you are all having a Sensation Sunday!  This is for the Loves Rubberstamps Sensational Sunday Post. 

As well as my card for this weeks MFT's Card Challenge.  I flipped the sketch and decided in honor of Laura adding A La Modes to her store's preorders, I would use one myself.  And since I had yet to get this cutie inky, I thought this was just the occasion.  That and I am late for my Sister's Birthday card, lol.  You know the old adage, the card makers family never gets a card?  Yup, that's me.  lol.  Just today, in the midst of making this card, did I find out that MFT's is retiring some of their A La Modes!  NO!!!  AND Flopsey too?  Well, it's not confirmed but it's sure looking that way.  So that being said, get the A La Modes while you can girls!

I am also featuring a new item in the store that I specially asked for.....Card Candi!!!!  Whooo Hooo!!!!  I love these little Card Candi's.  You will see them all week from me and then some!!!  lol.
They come in so many colors and textures.  These look like brads without any hassle.  I didn't have to measure, (like I ever do, lol) and poke holes and pray I could maneuver them so they looked even.  All I did was place a teeny tiny Candi Fix underneath, peel off the top of the adhesive and put it where I want it.  Viola.  No fuss.  Love that!  You don't even really need the Candi Fix, any dimensional adhesive would work, but you will need to cut them down to teeny tiny squares, lol.  So why not pick up the Candi Fix and save yourself some time?  I spray copic RV09 and RV04 over the silk flowers and added a large silver brad.  I put a piece of score tape over the brad and just plopped my Coffee Bean Card Candi right on top.  Perfect!  No more searching for the perfect colored brads.  And these have the slightest bit of shine to them, I just love them.  You gotta try these out!  But don't buy the icing sugar ones, I want to hoard those, lol.  I'll show you the icing sugar ones on Tuesday's card, lol.

After coloring up my Birthday Girl, I stamped her on sticky note paper and cut her out and laid her over my colored image with non-stick dotto and airbrushed BG10 around her. 

Now while this is not a Halloween Themed card, there is still time to get in on our challenge - Halloween theme!  Make sure you upload so I can see your fabulous projects and leave you a comment.

Holly, this is adorable! Great use of the sketch. I should probably start working on mine, huh? :) The browns and pastels go perfectly together for a cupcake card!
