Inkspirations Sketch #12 and then the rest

All the best laid plans.... etc etc. I had some big plans for this weekend stamping-wise but you know how it goes when life gets in the way. We had a great time though. It was very social and lots of fun and awesome weather so I really don't have a lot to share except this which I had sooo much fun creating. Yet again my oldest daughter is invited to another birthday party and this of course provides me with a legitimate excuse to go all girly. 7 year olds still tolerate cutsey fortunately.

I started off with Makeesha's Inkspirations Sketch Challange #12 and came up with this card using my new Enchanted Lily Stamps which are absolutely gorgeous and so much fun to colour.

This image just "screamed" for movement so using one of the new flower brads from SU she now swings from side to side and I have even put an image underneath her that can only be read if she does swing. Check it out. Oh so cute!

Once again I have used a Timeless Template courtesy of the extremely talented Lauren Meader and very quickly whipped up this Fold and Go which houses cute little bottles of toiletries for the birthday girl. And to finish up, no present is complete without lollies which are in this very cute paint tin I found at The Warehouse. Just how I love it! A complete gift all colour co-ordinated and very girly.

I have used: (all products Stampin Up unless indicated)

C/stock: Cameo Coral, Rose Red, Whisper White, Raspberry Tart DSP
Ink: Cameo Coral, Rose Red
Stamps: Embrace Life, Enchanted Lily (Pink Cat Studio)
Accessories: Rose Red Grosgrain Dble Stitched 1", Gold Brads, Flower Brads, Felt Fusion Flowers, Labels 3 Nestabilities, Mat Pack, Eyelet Border Punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, Copics, Spica Glitter Pens, Paint Tin (The Warehouse), Fold N Go Template - Lauren Meader.
