Girly birthday card

I'm here today with my Bellarific Babe card for Stamping Bella and it's a birthday card for a sweet girly friend of mine...


And this Uptown Girl sure is girly!  This is Ava Loves To Celebrate and I paper pieced her dress with some Pink Petticoat gingham papers.  For the background papers I used DCWV Sweet Stack and Melissa Bennett Stripes Lights papers.  I used Echo Park letter stickers - I got so many of these in my stash that I'm determined to use them up!  I dotted more Glamour Dust about her skirt, on the roses and the cake icing - it really sparkles!  I am entering this into Annette's birthday celebration candy!

Hey, Christine - I used pink!!

Okay, I am off now - thank you for visiting and I will see you soon on my blog rounds!

Hi Mary..

I'm so glad to see that you've got out your pink bits Mary... I was just about to comment on the fab colours you've used when I saw your comment to let me know!! She looks soooo fab in her pink gingham dress with the pink flowers in her hair.. but then again, she's so slim she'd look fab in anything!

Gorgeous design - and those letter stickers are perfect for it!

Big hugs... back to work tomorrow??
