Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - Birthdays!

If you are here for the Whiff of Joy Challenge blog hop please click here


Woohoo!! Wednesday again and time for another Simon Says Stamp's Challenge! Wow! we had almost 900 entries last week - you blew us away with all those amazing entries, thank you so much!!! As always we are sponsored by the lovely Heidi with a whopping $50 credit voucher for the amazing Simon Says Stamp store!!


Our theme this week is birthdays - rather appropriate for me as it is my darling little girl's third birthday on Sunday (sniff, sniff - can't BELIEVE she is 3 already!!). So, my challenge card is her birthday card!! Before I show you my card though I'll just share a picture of the inspiration for it - the cuter than cute fabric wendy house she got for Christmas!!
Wish I'd noticed the curtains were askew before I took the photo LOL!
Here is my card version!! I have used Magnolia papers and inked the edges with tattered rose distress ink. Now, of course as it is her birthday card there is obviously a party going on at this house!!
Tilda with balloon is just arriving LOL, coloured with copics and I've added stickles to the lace on her dress. I have added a fence with Magnolia's lovely fence die, which stands proud of the house front and I've popped Tilda onto that with foam dots. The gorgeous blossom next to her is a Prima Athena flower and I've added a leaf cut with a doohickey die.

I coloured the Romantic Window stamp with copics too and cut each window pane out. I added a touch of pale pink lace for curtains behind the window! The salmon pink roses were made with Sizzix 3D flowers die and the butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I copied the scallped roof on her real wendy house by punching with Martha Stewart doily lace punch. The house number 3 (for her age!) is a sticker I've had for ages, covered in stickles.
Inside the party is getting going with King Tilda enjoying herself and Birthday Tilda with her birthday cake ready to greet the birthday girl! I made a little table from white cardstock, added a lace tablecloth and a cupcake brad from Dovecrafts.
I coloured these two with copics too and added stickles to the lace on their outfits. The wallpaper border is a paper ribbon that was a RAK from a friend.
The pennants were cut with Whiff of Joy's pennants die and I added Kara with stickers covered in stickles.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamp! Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations! Thanks for looking! x
