MAWTT Challenge 154 - Happy Birthday!

Good Morning! Hope you are all doing ok. This next fortnight we really hope you can join us for a very special challenge over at...

Moving Along With The Times

because we are celebrating our 3rd Birthday!!! Woo Hoo!!!! How Cool is that!! So what better theme could we have than...

'Happy Birthday'

So we want to see your creations for a 'Happy Birthday' - it doesn't have to be a card... could be a gift.. a tag.. bag...cake...etc. as long as we can see that it follows a 'Birthday' theme!! 

We have some fab prizes this week to celebrate ... and you have 2 whole weeks to enter.... So you have until 8pm BST Wednesday 4th July 2012. We really hope lots of you can join in the fun and make it a big celebration!! 

For inspiration this week I have made a card using a gorgeous digi image from My Crafty Heart....

She has been drawn by the very talented Teresa and is called 'Celebration Girl'. She is just perfect for a special Birthday Celebration!! I've coloured her with Promarkers and Paper-Pieced the dress... the gorgeous paper is Basic Grey - 'Little Black Dress'. As it's her 21st she has to have some Champagne! ;-) so I've added some Stickles to her glass of bubbly! 

The gorgeous flower is Prima Dollhouse Collection - 'Goddess' and I've added a leaf using Marianne Design - Anja Leaves 2 - I really love these leaves...!! :-)) I've added some crystal gems to her shoes - Hero Arts 'small mixed gemstones' and finally some pearls which are from the new MeiFlower range at MCH. I've not gone overboard with the embellies as I wanted to keep it Elegant and Classy... I have decorated inside to match too!

and Teresa at My Crafty Heart is one of our fab sponsors for this Challenge
