It's Hump day again already!!!! It's time for the challenge over atCreative Inspirations.
The challenge this week is Lace. Pins & Pearls.Now just how easy is this challenge this week!!!??

You can use whatever colours you want just added Lace, pins and pearls!!
Today I have chosen to used some SWEET images!!! You see this is a birthday card for my son's special girl's birthday and she is such a sweetheart!! She LOVES sweets!! LOL.. She fits so perfect into our family!! She is just a sweetheart!! So this is a perfect card for her.
She loves pinks and browns too. I hope she likes this SWEET little card!!

I have used 3 different stamps to create this sweet card.
First the tray of goodies is a Stampendous the very cute little cupcake that is popped at the bottom is a yummy little stamp from Skogstokiga Rubberstamping. And the sentiment is a favorite of mine. It is from Impression Obsession Inc. Such a sweet little saying. On the inside of this card I have colored up one of my favorite Tilda's by Magnolia. I have used my Nesties to cut her out. I have used computer fonts for the HB and her name. And there is that very cute little yummy cupcake again! Now lets go back to the front of my card. As you can see I have added a ruffled eyelet lace with a beautiful brown and cream checked ribbon on top of it. I have added pearls in brown at the corners of the card and pink one on the corners of the image. If you look close you will see that in the flower arrangement I have added 2 heart stick pins.

If you look close at the paper that the main image is stamped on you will see that I have put white acrylic paint dots for some texture. I also have added stickles to the strawberries, cherries and the cute little pink cake on the middle tray.This card has been colored with my copic markers and watercolor pencils. I have used distressed inks on the edges and this card like all of my card has been sewn.

I hope you will find time to stop by the blog and see all of the stunning cards done by the other Designs Team members. I hope that you will find a few minutes to make a card and join us.
It is my hubby's birthday today also and I didn't get a card made for him. I struggle with men cards. So I went and bought him a playstation WII. I will think that he would not miss a card from me when he gets this little toy. hee hee.. Or lets hope not anyway. Cross your fingers for me. PLEASE.
Have a great rest of your week.
many blessings,
