Paper Sweeties 2nd Birthday Designer's Blog Hop!

I've been invited to participate in the Paper Sweeties 2nd Birthday Designer's Blog Hop!

And my card is featured on the Pause Dream Enjoy Facebook!!!

 
I was so excited to take out my Sweeties and make a card as a Guest Designer. Challenge 22 has a photo for inspiration AND since it's the Paper Sweeties 2nd birthday, please make a birthday card for the challenge!


 I used my Sweet Abigail paper doll and this adorable outfit named Jelly Bean Time.


My papers were perfect for the color part of the challenge and they're from My Minds Eye pad named "Happy Go Lucky". I love this color purple, too! The banner is a die cut from La La Land and I used stick on letters for the word "Happy". The "Birthday" is a die cut by Marianne and so is the frame around my image. I used a gold metal corner and embossed it with burgundy sparkling embossing powder from Sprinkle n Sparkle. My flowers are from Wild Orchid (and I've put a dash of glitter on a few of the flower petals). My lace, double satin ribbon, button threaded with embroidery thread and rhinestones are all from my stash.

Below is a close-up of my image. She's colored with Copics. Oh, and the embossing on the die cut behind my Abigail was done with white ink over the burgundy paper with the die still on top of the paper after it was cut.


If you're following the blog hop, then you've come to my blog from Jill's blog. After visiting me, your next stop is at Mackie's. If you've lost your way, go back to the main page here.

Thank you, Debbie and the Design Team, for the invitation to join you as a Guest Designer for this challenge! 

                                                                                    Hugs,
                                                                                     Gail

  6. Gorgeous, gorgeous colours, Gail! Your detailing and colouring are superb! To answer your question about my fussy cutting, I edge the image first with a grey marker then cut it out. It makes me cutting look slightly less amateurish!!! :)
    Have a wonderful weekend! xx

  22. Hi Gail! One of the best things about this celebration is meeting new people (I hope I just didn't forget meeting you before!) Your card is wonderful! Abby is especially festive in her mauve finery, and your coloring is professional. Looks like you've had instruction. I took a class and it was so helpful in using coplics.The banner, the frames, just WOW! Can't wait to visit you again!
