Blissful, Beautiful Birthday

Hi again!  It's my second post today, so if you are looking for my Mo's Digital Challenge card, please scroll down one post.  It's been rainy and dreary here, so I spent a little time in my craft room and made a card for a few challenges I like to do.  It is for the Saturated Canary Challenge #16 (birthday), Simon Says Stamp Challenge (birthday), Basic Grey Challenge #67 (recipe: 1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments), the One Stop Craft Challenge #180 (same recipe as BG), Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #138 and finally the Copic Challenge on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom (celebrations).  Phew!

Here is the Midnight Madness sketch that I used.  I actually created something in between the CAS and the Fancy versions of the sketch.

Here is my card for all the challenges:

I started with a card base of SU Marina Mist and layered the sketch panels with two patterned papers from the Basic Grey Picadilly 6x6 pad.  I added a scalloped border to the vertical panel that I made with the negative diecut from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents border die.  I embossed a strip of Marina Mist with the Cuttlebug Mary Anne embossing folder then scored another line down each side. My image is Nevaeh from Saturated Canary.  You can find her in Krista's shop here.  I printed her on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a little Star Dust Stickles to the lace on her dress.  The image was cut out with a Spellbinders Petite Oval die and framed with Spellbinders Floral Oval die.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Have Yourself A set.  You can find it in Paulette's store here.  Three Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by again!  See you tomorrow!  I'll have some exciting news to share with you then!

Your card is beautifully coloured Carla, the papers are gorgeous, and I so love the colour palette. I think I will have to pick me up some of these gorgeous SB doily dies for sure.
