Friday Sketch #61 Challenge Reminder/Angela's Birthday Card

It's official. I am old. I must be, because I forgot to enter four challenges last week with my Outlawz card. Geesh! Oh, well...guess I wasn't supposed to enter them. Ya think?

So, today with my first post, I am reminding you to get your entries into our Friday Sketch #61 Challenge. Don't forget. Don't be an old-fart like me.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Tiddly Inks, which has some of the cutest images around. The winner will receive a $5 Gift Certificate. So get your entries in!

Tiddly Inks Acrylic and Digital Stamps

I promised a review of our dinner out last Saturday. And I will give you one--just not on this post. Check my second post today for that information, OK?

I chose a darling Tiddly Inks image, Hey There Cupcake, for this sketch:

I printed the image on MICBC, and colored her with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E30, YR31, E33, E35
Dress: YG93, YG95, YG97
Shoes: G000, G00, BG11
Cupcakes: Y32, Y35, Y38, BG13, BG15, BG18

I added some Star Dust Stickles to the cupcake frosting, just because I could. And then a bit of Wink of Stella Brush Clear to her necklace. My color palette was taken from my DP: the Bo Bunny Key Lime collection. And I paired that with Stampin' Up CS. There are several die cuts on this card made from the following:

Lifestyle Nesting Doily Hearts
Lifestyle Heart Doily
Stampin' Up Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings
Whimsy Corner 
Whimsy Mini Ticket

My sentiment is from the Whimsy Celebration Mini Ticket sentiment collection. I finished the card with some gemstone stickers. I hope my daughter likes this card next month. She is a year behind reading my blog, (yes, I said a year!), so I don't have to worry about her seeing this before her birthday. 

Do check out the wonderful work by my teammates at Friday Sketch. And then please join us in this challenge!

I will be back with my second post soon, you lucky ducks!
