Anything Goes for Sparkles 2nd Birthday!

Hello lovely blogging friends! I hope you are enjoying the weekend wherever you may be.

It's time for another challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges and this one is going to be popular I am sure.


Yup, to celebrate that Sparkles Monthly Challenges is turning 2, we want everyone to celebrate with us. So no matter what your creation, head to Sparkles and join in the fun.

For my DT creation I used another Tiddly Inks image - Wryn Birthday. How cute is she?

I tried something new this week.. paper piecing! I've never done it before so I thought I'd give it a go on the presents in this images and I have to say I love how they turned out.

I decorated the inside of the card to match. I finally had some luck with my bow tying skills and managed a pretty decent bow on this one. The button, ribbons and pearl stick ons were from my stash.

The rest of the image was coloured with copics as always. The papers are Carta Bella "Paris Girl", except the middle present which was the tiniest scrap of something else. This card is for one of my very best friends, who adores the colour pink and anything cute.

I hope you'll come join us at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Our challenge is sponsored by Digital Delights who are offering $5 of digi images to our lucky winner.

This card is also entered into the following challenges:
