Springtime Birthday Sweet Pea!


OK they got me hook, line and sinker!!!! I just adore these images.  As many of you know one of my favorite things to do is color!  I tend to say I never quite outgrew my box of crayons, they just cost more now!!!  Well the Sweet Pea images just lend themselves to people who enjoy coloring!!!!

This one is I believe is called "It's My Birthday" Can you see the birthday cupcake in her hand? I couldn't decide what view to show you so you are going to get them all.

Just the fact that most of the images are fairies. As you know I have a thing for anything that has wings. The green circles are suppose to mimic the scales on her tail. I know that she is not a spring card but with her butterfly wings and the bright colors she looks pretty springy to me. One more view for you!!!

I colored this beauty with my copics and unfortunately I forgot in my excitement to write down the colors. Let me tell you I used a whole bunch of pinks, purples, greens and aqua's!  To shadow her skin I used my W1 which I find I am really liking. What do you all think?  I used my cricut cartridge "home accents" to cut the corners and butterflies, the middle punch was MS double loop.  I used liquid pearls on all the dots on the image and on the corners for dimension.  Stickles all over the place. I wanted her to sparkle!!!!! I also put glossy accents on the glow behind her candle before I stickled it. A few gems here and there and she was ready for her debut!
