Happy 5th Birthday Sweet Stampin'

Yay Sweet Stampin' is 5 today!!!

Happy Birthday To Us - so to celebrate I've created a special birthday card just for the occasion. To see more birthday cards from our lovely Design Team, and to join in with this week's challenge go  to Sweet Stampin' 

For my card this week I used a Mo Manning digi stamp, it's an old digi that Mo gave away for one of her challenges - however you can still buy her from Mo's online shop here. I've had her coloured up for ages so I thought I would give the poor thing a home on my CAS card.


Here's What I did
I used a white 5" x  5" card base which I matted with bright pink card. Then I die cut a circle in the middle of some pale pink card to create an inverted frame, behind which I added a small piece of  pretty flowery paper. As I mentioned Trudy was already coloured up with some promarkers - I think I coloured her approx a year ago and she looks pretty good! All I needed to do with Trudy was fussy cut her out, add a little sparkle and layer her up onto my card base. To finish off I added faux stitching, a die cut flower, my personal greeting to Sweet Stampin' and a few Candi.

Here's everything I used:
Stamp: 'Trudy Party Dress' by Mo Manning
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Pink CS, Trimcraft 'What A Hoot' Paper Pad
Promarkers: Unknown - sorry!!!
Dies: Tonic 'Circle' Layering Dies, MFT Die-namics Blueprint 'xxx'
Other: Glitter, Candi, Fineliner Pen
