Stylin' birthday


     Today's a very special day.  My baby girl turns 22 today!  Boy does time fly.  She's such a beautiful person, inside and out and I couldn't be prouder.  She got a Uptown Girl for Valentine's and she's getting another one for her birthday.  This is "Posh has a present".
     Splitcoast Stampers is having a huge Members Company Love Fest with all their sponsor companies.  There's a different challenge every day and Stamping Bella's challenge happens to be "Bring on the Bling".  That means glitter, gems, or metallic.  I went a bit crazy with the Stickles on this one.  The corner dies are covered as well as parts of the image, the flourish, and the sentiment.  I scattered a few pearls around and found that yummy Prima flower in my stash.  It already had some Diamond Dust on it, but I added some more.  I had the little butterfly left over from another project so I popped it on the flower.  The leaves are die cut, colored with Copics and inked.  The ribbon was white seam binding that I colored with Tattered Rose Distress Stain and ruched for some girly frou frou.
     A special hello and thank you to my new followers.  I hope you enjoy your visits.

I love the shape of your card, Tracy and your stitching is lovely. I am trying hard not to buy more images until I have used all the images I already have at least once but you have made this Uptown Girl look so lovely that I am sorely tempted to splash out. a Super card! I especially like the ruffled ribbon and pretty papers. Hugs, Lesley
