Birthday Cuppicakes

Hi there,
Boy, have we ever been hit with some
weird weather here in Kansas.
Presently, it is pouring buckets,
which is, naturally, right after I washed my car.
I have given up hope on taking a fabulous picture
of my card, I will just have to show you what I have.

It's a special challenge week over at
Simon Says Challenge.
Heidi just had a birthday,
so she chose the challenge
and put together a scrummdiddily prize for us.
So, knowing how much Heidi and the other
Simon Says babes do for us out in blogland,
I absolutely want, nay, HAVE to join in!!
Heidi chose this sketch bi Iris,
isn't it gorgeous??!!!

From my many stalkings of the
Simon Says Stamp Blog
I've picked up that Heidi is a fan of Tilda,
and I think, think.... she likes pink,
and well, EVERYONE likes cupcakes, so,
here we arrive at my card.
I got this Tilda in the mail,
and what do you know,
it's from their store, haha,
and have been anxious to ink it up,
the perfect occasion!!
Poor Tilda had a rosacea flair-up though,
I tried to apply some soothing ointment,
and look what happened. Nuts.
I've used a wonderful oval dresser-upper
tutorial by the amazing Kellie, you can find it here,
coloured with watercolour pencils,
dressed up my image with Stickles,
Crystal Lacquer, and white gel pen,
the buttons are BG,
the ribbons are from my stash,
and I am sorry but don't know who made the paper.

Thanks for looking,
and happy late birthday, Heidi!!

Take Care,

Oh I so love this. Tilda looks so sweet and the cupcake papers look good enough to eat! All in all a scrumptious card. Funny how the weather has a way of changing when you have just cleaned the car or put out the washing, we have sunshine here so I am sending some to you. Tracey x

Steph, what a cute card. Love your new Tilda.
Background papers are yummy. Love the border, thanks for the link to the tutorial, have to try that soon. I like her little rosy cheeks.
