Card-Makin' Mamas 'Birthday' challenge (sponsered byTickled Pink)

Morning all & my second post for today is for the Card-Makin' Mamas challenge which we're all really excited about as its being sponsered by Tickled Pink' stamps who are having a special Birthday Celebration! (hence the birthday theme!) We all instantly fell in love with these stamps & I can't believe I've never heard of them before. They are extreemly well drawn images & the style of them is simply out of this world. They are right up my street & I'm absolutely blown away by them! - They will defo become a firm favourite of mine me thinks.

If you would like to purchase any of their images or to find out more info click here.

I choose to work with this fabulous little fairy 'Lil Allsorts Fairy Kira' who I've just fallen in love with - she totally rocks! I really, really enjoyed working with her & I love the end result...


...The scrummy papers are Annalee by Prima, although I seemed to have covered most of the detail with my Sweet Pea Flower Soft! To create the apature I stuck the doily with spray adhesive, then die-cut with a large Spellbinders Nestabilities circle die. Behind the apature I've attached netting then acetate - love this effect, I just discovered it on my last make & think I'll be using it a lot. I've also attached 2 acetate overlays (the glittery swirls in the topleft & bottom right corners) which came with a Fancy Pants collection 'Lilac House'...
