Lollipop Crafts Birthday Challenge

Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday... Happy Birthday to you!

Hello Monday!!! Wow, the weekend went by so fast!! guess that's what happens when you're having fun right! Had lovely family time going to a party, doing some shopping and going to a craft fair... and the best of it all, it was done with family!! =D okay and the 2nd best thing that has happened is that i FINALLY got a new CAMERA!!! Wooohoooo! score! and i'm so loving it!

yah, yah... enough rambling right?! hehe... well, today over at Lollipop Crafts, we have a challenge that is asking you to celebrate... Kim is our hostess this week for Challenge #15 and she wants you to celebrate with a BIRTHDAY theme!! That's right, get creative with birthday wishes and join us!

We have Stamp and Create sponsoring this week with a FANTABULOUS prize!! seriously, you don't want to miss this one!! so head on over to Lollipop Crafts and check out the deets... and while you're there, check out the DTs birthday creationstoo... take a look at mine since you're here...
this challenge came at the most wonderful time as one of my friends will be celebrating her birthday soon! here i used Fleur Anya from TGF (one of my FAVE, Anya stamps)! but did you know that you can also get TGF products from Stamp and Create?! yup, you can! anyway, before i go my copics i've done lots of paper piecing... i love the way it turns out and it gives paper patterns to the image... however, i stopped doing it for a while after getting my copics because i was coloring more and paper piecing does take a little longer than just coloring... every now and then i like to revisit paper piecing... so that's what's been done here! paper pieced her dress and flowers.... then i added yellow rhinestones to the flower middles... found this cute frills ribbon in my stash and thought it'd be perfect to bring out the hints of orange in her dress... hehe, and i had to add those star buttons too! i hope my friend likes this card!! what do you think of my creation?!? (p.s. i took the pix with my new camera!!! i LOVE how the colors are bold and the quality is much better!!)
