Celebrations

..is the theme over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. As long as it is celebrating something and you have a Sugar Nellie image your set.This challenge worked out great again! I needed to make a b-day card for along time friend and it helped me to pick out my image! I don't know about anyone else but I have a very hard time just making a card if it is not for a specific reason or person! I have to make it for someone or I just can't make one!! (Good thing I have a very big family!) Am I the only one like this????
Anyway I just LOVE coloring these Elisabeth Bell images in and I cannot wait to get my hands on more!! Did you see the adorable Christmas ones!! UGH between those stamps and the Hanglar and Stanglar ones Funkykits is going to get 1/2 my husband's paycheck!! AND I will be getting a divorce! (LOL) Well it wouldn't really be funny but worth it!! (Just kidding) Anyway though I seen if you have suggestions for stamp ideas she acts on them!! I suggested picnics and she mentioned my name on her blog!! I was actually blushing I think!!!
Back to the card! (Can you tell I am extremely over~tired) Paper is from Basic Grey's Perhaps pad. The ribbon is from Micheals, flower is a prima and the sentiment is from CHF. I ran the thin strip of orange through the paisley cuttlebug embossing folder. I put the sentiment on acetate and rubbed the edges on white ink but it is hard to see in the photo. The white rub-ons are from CTMH. I filled them in with my pink glitter pen! I also had to cut out another flower and place it up on top of the other because it didn't stamp well but I think it turned out good!

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!!

Haha! Kathy, you are so cute! :D Thank you for your wonderful idea once again!

I just wanted to let you know that this card is so gorgeous. I LOVE how you've used the glitter on the image - it looks like dew drops on the flower, sparkling water on the watering can, and the bracelet looks so shiny! I love the colours and the paper too. Beautiful!!

*Hugs!*
