Heartfelt Wishes For A Happy Birthday

Hi friends! Isn't this Tilda image cute? I thought she was perfect for the three challenges I'm entering this card into.
Sketch Saturday - A sketch which you can see below
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Happy Birthday theme
Simon Says - Things with wings

Image is Tilda blowing hearts by Magnolia. I colored her with Prismacolor colored pencils. Printed paper is by Basic Grey and N2N Designs. Flowers were made with Paper Shapers flower retro flower punch and Crystal Stickles were used on Tilda's wings.

Inside of card above and sketch used is shown below.

I also tried something least new for me. I have been seeing on a lot of blogs where part of the image is sticking out past the actual cut part of the Nestabilities shape. I love the look of that technique and also found it to be so super easy to do. If you haven't tried it yet and would like to then check out the how to tutorial that Splitcoast Stampers has. You can find it HERE
Thanks for stopping by!

Butterflies Easel Card / Mother's Day

I am entering this into the challenge this week for Our Creative Corner Challenge blog which is butterflies. I really have been loving the easel cards lately and I am hoping my mother in law will too as I made this for her for Mother's Day. Printed papers are by Basic Grey's Ambrosia collection. Cardstock is by Bazzill. Butterfly was made by using Spellbinders Butterfly 2 die set.

This is only my second time to participate in a challenge with Our Creative Corner. I follow them weekly though as I find tons of inspiration on their blog and they have the most amazing and talented design team. I hope you will take the time to check them out. I guarantee you will love what you see there!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
