A Tickled Birthday

 I placed an order at Tickled Pink Stamps a while back & I got my order a couple days ago! So excited to finally get my RUBBA! You know as much as I love digi's, sometimes there's nothing like a good rubber stamp at your finget tips!
I thought for sure I would have my stuffs in time for the last Tickled Pink Challenge, but NOPE, so I decided to get in on this week's challenge which is a fantastic sketch.
Here we have Molly Mitten's Christmas. I altered her a bit to make her a birthday card. I covered the holly on her dress with little blingy flowers (pic below). I also paper pieced her dress & hat. I added a bit of festivity to the end of her hat instead of the pom pom.

All the ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbons. I am now in love with this silk ribbon. It is such a perfect accent! I stamped a balloon from my SU Whimsy set with my CTMH blush ink & stamped a sentiment on it with Vintage photo ink.

Heres' my completed inside. The color looks off, cuz I took this picture at a later time of the day. Woops sorry! As I said above this is a birthday card,  for a girl in my son's class. Her 4th birthday is today & we are going to Party it up from 10am til noon! WooHOO!

Challenges for my card:
Simon Says Stamp- card for a child
Freshly Brewed- cute & sweet
A Spoon Full of Sugar- all creatures great & small
Tuesday Throwdown- sparkle & bling
Ai Factory- party animal
Paper Sundaes- childhood memories ( I loved my b-day parties)
Tickled Pink -sketch (see below)
Sketch #2
