A few more challenges!

I made this card for the current challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Blog. This week is Challenge #12 and Tara has a rockin challenge to use metal! I'm also entering this for The Pink Elephant Challenge #49 which is a Birthday theme!

I have had this adorable Kraftin Kimmie Stamp for a few months now and was just itchin to use it. 'Clara' is usually holding a bird, but for the birthday challenge I decided to swap out the bird for a cupcake, it looks like she could be blowing out candles!

I coloured Clara up using my copic markers. I cut out the cupcake and pop dotted it on to her hand and added lots of stickles. I also added some stickles to the bottom hem of her skirt and hair pins. I added some blue metal brads for buttons on her petticoat and used a metal 'wish' tag with some organza ribbon in the top corner to match the sentiment which I printed from my computer. The yummy dp is by Pink Paislee. I picked up the green polkadot base paper at Scrappin' Great Deals. (a must have - this paper is awesome!!! and it comes in tons of different shades!)

I must say this image was soooooo much fun to colour, especially that firey red hair. Gonna check out the great sale Kimmie has goin on (until tomorrow), I think I need a few more stamps (I'm sure some would beg to differ) ha ha!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
