Abracadabra Alakazam!!

Just a couple of quick thankyous this morning,
before I show you my latest card.

Firstly to Debbie and the Spoon Full of Sugar team,
for organising and running Michelle's card drive,
and also to the generous ladies at Whiff of Joy.
I won the Aladin 1001 Night's stamps and they arrived a couple of days ago.
xxx Thankyou xxx

Here's my first attempt with the new stamps.
I coloured the image of the girl 4 times,
before I was remotely happy with it!!!

I would like to enter this card for a couple of challenges...
Cupcake Craft - where they are celebrating their 2nd birthday this week,
so they want to see 2 papers, 2 ribbons and 2 flowers.
If you join in you need to get your entry in by Saturday 21st Aug,
and they also have a birthday blog hop and cupcake trail for you to win lots of goodies.
Pink Elephant - where the theme is 'Ribbon & Sparkles'

I usually just add a plain insert to my cards,
but in this case, I couldn't see anywhere on the front where I could add the sentiment,
so I decorated the inside - just a little..  :-)

The stamps were coloured with Copics and I added lots of stickles glitter.
The girl was cut out and fixed with foam pads.
I made the blooms with a couple of punches, adding the pearl to the centre.
On the insert, I coloured the pearls with my copics, to match the paper.

Stamps - Whiff of Joy Aladin 1001 Nights
