Cupcake Birgitta

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. For me this was one of those weekends where I got a lot of nothing done, LOL! I thought I'd start the week off on the right foot and share this cute Swiss Pixie card I created just for fun. The darling little girl is the Cupcake Birgitta rubber stamp by C.C. Designs.

My card base is Dark Brown layered with White Cardstock then Pink Passion embossed using the D'vine Swirls Embossing Folder. The shadow layer is Green Galore embossed using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I stitched around the edges of the both the Pink Passion and Green Galore.

The image and sentiment are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. I used Diamond Stickles to add some sparkle on her wings. The pretty matching bow was made from wired ribbon I found in my stash. To finish off the card I added silver rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
