This weeks Sweet Stop Challenge was a fun one. I hope you have time to play. I had this cutie image half colored laying around my stamp room for over a month. It was perfect for the oval image panel for this sketch.

The image is from Mo’s Digital Pencil and is called Birthday Fairy. It was printed out on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut with Petite Oval Nestabilities dies and colored with Copic Markers (Skirt: Y11, Y13, Y15     Top: R11, R12, R14, BG10, BG11, BG13    Wings: BG0000, BG000   Cupcake: E31, E33, E34, R11, R12, R14    Hair: Y21, Y23, E33    Skin: E000, E01, E02     Ground: C3, C5, C7, C9       Background: B0000, B000, B12).

The oval was adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with a Scallop Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The wings were covered in Stardust Stickles, the Cupcake with Yellow, Orange Peel and Stardust Stickles.


A 5″ long strip of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the border die from Flower Doily Accents.  It was adhered underneath a 2 3/8″ x 5″ piece of  Echo Park 6″ x 6″ Walk in the Park paper. The layers were adhered to a 5″ square of the same paper pack that had been stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock. All layers were adhered to a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

A piece of Melissa Frances white ribbon was adhered on the lower part of a  3″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Walk in the park paper. The paper was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of Kraft cardstock before the layers were adhered to the card base. The image layers were adhered over that with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from The Cat’s Pajamas Birthday Bunny set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and layered on a slightly bigger strip of Kraft cardstock.

Tissue paper was cut with a flower die from the Flower Doily Accent die set and topped with a Rhinestone brad. It was attached to the upper right hand side of the image layers. A Recollection Rhinestone swirl was adhered next to it.

The blue flower is from Prima, the white flower on the lower left corner is from Zva creative. They finish off the birthday card.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
