What is a birthday without cupcakes and presents? Birthday blog candy

Hi everyone! Today is my middle daughter's 6th birthday so I thought we would celebrate! First, I will show you the card I made for her then I will show the blog candy.



I first stamped my swing and then colored it with copic markers. Once colored I then created the sky behind the swing by using my homemade cloud template (a scalloped oval punched out of acetate) and sponging with sky ink. Next my princess was stamped, colored with copics, cut out and accented with stickles. The princess was then adhered to the swing with pop dots. I colored the rhinestones inside my flowers with my V15 copic marker to make them purple. Never tried it before but boy do I like it! You can make a rhinestone the perfect color to match your project- woo hoo. Now I don't have to buy bling in EVERY color LOL. The matte around the princess and the sentiment as well as the hearts were painted with lilac shimmerz. My layout today was the sketch challenge on SCS that I flipped vertically.



Supplies:
stamps- high hopes princess, swing, sentiment
CS- PTI shimmer white, plum pudding, dp
accessories- lilac shimmerz, rhinestones, pop dots, stickles, bridal confetti flowers, satin ribbon, copics (V12, V15, V17, E00, E50, R20, Y21, Y23, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E25, E27)


Here is the blog candy:



In honor of Lindsey's 6th birthday you will have a chance to win 6 items:

1. MFT cupcake kind of day stamp set (NEW but not packaging)
2. 6 colors of grosgrain ribbon (approx 3 yds each)
3. cupcake rub-ons
4. some images
5. bling
6. butterfly embellishments

You will have 6 days to enter so I will close the blog candy on 2/9/09 at 10:55 AM which is the time she was born LOL. To enter for the blog candy drawing- you need to become a follower of my blog and post a comment that you did so on this blog post. If you are a follower already- just simply leave a comment on this post. Want a second chance to enter? If you post a link to my blog candy on your blog, you get a second entry and post a second comment saying that you did so.

ETA: I just had to share this. I gave my daughter her card and she loved it. What is sweeter though is that she has show and tell at school tomorrow and she wants to bring her princess card for her show and tell item. Is that not the sweetest thing? It just warmed my heart.

Thanks for stopping by today and good luck on winning the blog candy!

Birthday blessings,
