"Fancy" Birthday

Hello, again.  I sure didn't think I'd be back with another post today, but I wanted to share a card I made for a couple of challenges and I needed to get it posted before tomorrow. My card is for the November/December Challenge on Elisabeth Bell's World, which was a sketch challenge.  It is also for this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Let's Play BINGO.  I chose Row A: Ribbon/Twine, Gems, Glitter/Sparkle.  I also added a flower (from C2).

Here is the sketch we had to follow for the EBW challenge:

Here is my take on the sketch:

I started with a card base of SU Rose Red and used patterned papers from the Prima Madeline 6x6 pad.  I added a doily cut from Rose Red with the Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily die. To the middle panel, I added borders cut from Cryogen White with the Cheery Lynn Carnivale Border die.   My beautiful image is Fancy.  She is from The Ends Sampler by Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.  I was so lucky to have won that set during the release last month!  I stamped her on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics.  I added a few Stickles and some gems for some sparkle.  The sentiment tickets are from Papertrey's Just The Ticket set.  This set was a sweet gift from Lisa Kind.  Thanks, Lisa!  A triple loop satin bow and a Wild Orchid Crafts rose finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by again!  If you are off for the rest of the holiday season, many thanks for your visits and I wish you and yours the best for the new year!
