Belles 'n Whistles Stamps Challenge...Red and Sketch Saturday # 109...Happy Birthday to Our Sweet Angel!

Good Morning crafty friends! I thought I would share the card that I made last night for Hannah's 11th Birthday that is this Saturday...yes, I said it...11 years old...my gosh, where has the time gone! I was racking my brain as to what image to use for her card and then I saw the challenge yesterday at Belles 'n Whistles...Red...and I thought it would be fitting as Ruby is Hannah's birthstone and I remember like it was yesterday, going into labour on July 1st, Canada day, but she didn't make her special appearance until the 3rd!
Then I decided this cutie called Cupcake would be perfect...Hannah loves cupcakes and cats (well all animals, really! She knows the name of every dog that lives in our neighbourhood,smile!) I coloured the image with Copics and cut it out with my Nesties and used Old paper Distress ink for the background and I stamped a Kelly Pannaci flourish stamp with Antique Linen Distress ink.

I also used the beautiful sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week...I hope you can still see it under all the embellies but I do tend abundantly embellish,he, he, he! I made my easel card with AC cardstock and used this yummy October Afternoon paper. I used my Catslife Press stamps and Melissa Frances and QuicKutz rub-ons. I used my new and gorgeously scrumptious Wild Orchid Crafts roses and MS butterflies punched out of silver glitter paper and lots of red bling!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at Hannah's B-day card! I hope she likes it! She has been band from visiting my blog until Saturday,lol! We will see if she can resist.
Hope you have a stampin' great day!
