Birthday Cake

Sorry for the washed out picture today, I'm not used to taking pictures in sunshine! This is a little Nellie's Choice stamp called Dawn and cake, coloured with Copics and with various digi papers from Cuddly Buddly with edges inked with Versamagic chalk ink. The pearls are made with my cream Waco pearl maker pen and the pink gems are from my stash. Here's the list of Copic colours:

skin tones - E000, 00, 21, 02
hair - E30, 31, 55
pinks - RV000, 00, R81, 83
blues - B0000, 000, 00

I've used the sketch from the A Spoonful of Sugar blog and am getting in at the last minute again! The Paperplay challenge is for embossing, I have a Swiss dots embossed layer beneath the image and the Joy die cut butterflies are also embossed. Charisma Cardz are looking for die cuts so as well as my butterflies I've also die cut my image and mat with Nesties.

I'm in a bit of a recovery mode again today, it was great going out to the craft demo on Saturday and for lunch afterwards with my friends. But, I seem to have picked up a bit of a tummy bug and spent most of Saturday night and yesterday in the bathroom. Fortunately I have a few images already coloured up so I just need to potter about in the craft room and create a card or two then I can share on my blog later in the week. I'm still not getting around to doing much commenting either, so apologies again for not visiting you after you have kindly left me a comment. Hopefully I will get caught up as the week goes on.
