Celebrate!...Happy Birthday!!..Doraline and News!!

I have a few birthdays to catch up on....and this card is for a very special gal who just loves squirrels and chipmunks. This Doraline from Motivet rubber stamps is just the Cutest and so perfect for this card. The sentiments are gelatin stamps.

Be sure to check out the Motivet site....as they have new stamps...a Handsome young fella named Dexter...and some fabulous new Christmas stamps!! Visit their fabulous Inspiration Blog to see the Gorgeous DT cards...and comment for a chance to win some Fabulous stamps!! Motivet stamps are also available from Phebe at The Town Scrapper ....you can email Phebe right here.

I used one of Bea's Wonderful sketches for this card. Bea not only has a Fabulous blog "Megastamper"....she has a sketch challenge going on with a great prize!!

The patterned paper on this card is Digital....I downloaded it from "Sweet Shoppe Designs" and printed out what I wanted. The Gorgeous kit I downloaded and used here is called Happiness by Zoe Pearn. Zoe has many beautiful kits at Sweet Shoppe Designs and has a fabulous blog called Sweet Nothings.

Onto the card.....The images are colored with copics, prismacolor pencils...and twinkling h20's.

After coloring..I cut out Doraline and the balloon. I stamped celebrate on the balloon, used diamond glaze on the white highlight ovals and went over the remaining part with a stardust pen for a bit of sparkle. I then added a string.

Doraline, the balloon, sentiment and scalloped oval are all popped up on foamy's. I made these cute Lollipop Flowers using a tutorial from the new challenge blog called The Next Level. What a great place.....Lots of neat things going on there!!

The leaves I just cut out by eyeballing and distressed.....The lovely heart pin is from my sweet friend Tina....at Yummy Scrummy Create.

---------------------------------------------------------------
