Sparkly Birthday Wishes

When I made Ella's birthday card back in July, I made two (as is typical for me), but instead of keeping one as a model, I made the second for my niece Jocelyn's birthday in September.  When I first saw the "Pony Party" stamp set, I just knew it would be perfect for birthday cards (and "just because" cards) for little girls.  How right I was.  :o)

Because Ella is the child of the original "Pink Bunny", I made the card as pink and sparkly as possible.  It is an easel card so it can be propped up and long admired. ;o)

To create the shades of pink in the mane and tail, I simple got out my blender pen and the Melon Mambo stamp pad.  Then, I layered more color on where I wanted it darker and less where I wanted it lighter. 

Using my two-way glue pen, I added Dazzling Diamonds here and there on the pony/unicorn.  For the glittery images in the background, I used VersaMark and heat and stick powder. 

It really was a fun (if time consuming!) card to make. :o)

This card uses:
Stamp Set: "Pony Party"
Papers: Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Inks: Black StazOn, Melon Mambo, VersaMark
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, 1 1/4" Pink Pirouette grosgrain ribbon, heat and stick powder

I think I need to play with Dazzling Diamonds. Your card is wonderful.
