Happy Birthday Girl

Yay ~ I finally was able to post a picture on blogger after trying so many times ~ I hope it is all fixed now!

I was lucky and won this adorable stamp from Squiggle Stamps. Since my mail is a bit slow, and I haven't received it yet, Tracy was a sweet heart and sent me the digi image so I could enter the current challenge over at Squiggle Stamps ~ thanks again for that!

This is the sketch for their current challenge:

And here is what I came up with:
I have had this stack of papers for quite awhile, and while I really do like them, I never remember I have them ~ I guess it pays to go digging in your cabinets every once in awhile.  Unfortunately I still haven't come across my items that went missing some time back (and I ended up buying a new BG05 marker)...and now I can also add a bone folder, a pinking shears and an embossing stylus to the list ~ I swear a craft fairy comes and visits me, but instead of a good one that leaves me things I have a mean one that takes them away from me.....seriously though, I have no clue where the stuff is going, especially since it stays in my craft room, at one of my two work areas.  The image was colored with copics and I added some pearls (colored with R85) to the cupcake for some sprinkles.  I am loving those mini prima roses ~ so fun to use!  

In addition to the Squiggle Stamps challenge, I am also entering the following:

Magical Crafts - "Something for the Girls"
One Stitch at a Time - Flowers
