Pink and girly birthday cake card

Happy Wednesday to you folks, hope its being a good one for you. Fairly quiet here and I'm making the most of it as the kiddiewinkles break up for half term on Friday so my peace will be shattered then!

Anyway, I have a quick card to share with you today, one which I made for my little girl's friend Molly as she went to her party at the weekend. In fact it was a crafting party and she loved every minute of it. Sorry about the colours, not sure what I've done here but the second piccie shows them off better.

As you can see I had a go at making one of those birthday cake cards and I got the idea from the mega talented Kathrin here. At first I thought it was going to be quite hard but in fact it was amazingly simple and so effective and I can see myself making quite a few of these.
Okay what did I use. Firstly I followed the fab sketch from over on Just Magnolia this week and loved this one will be using it again. Obviously the gorgeous magnolia stamp, cardstock was bazzill, papers were the Pink Petticoat freebie pad from Quick Cards this month and they are just yummy, roses were from WOC, sentiment was craftwork cards and I used my new Martha Stewart punch which I treated myself to the other day and I just adore it. Everything else was from stash, oh and I used a mixture of copics and prismacolor pencils to colour her in.
Right off to do some colouring now, catch up with you later. Take care folks, Ann-Marie xxx
