Elisabeth Bell - Bonne fête

Hello everyone!  I'm here to share a card that I made to enter in the fabulous GDT over at Elisabeth bells.  I know that this is a very LOOOOOONG shot.  Since there's soooo much talent on that team... but hey like I always says to a friend of mine you have nothing to lose and only regrets if you don't at least try out.

I used one of my Belles' n Whistles stamps that hadn't seen ink yet... yes hanging my head in shame... I had to purchase it because I just love those images but I had not taken the time to create with it.  This was the perfect opportunity to do so.  Even if I don't make it on the team at least I will have used it for a very cute b-day card.

Since that was an ultra special card I used my very precious paper from Graphic 45 - botanical tea.  I did some stitching all around the card because I wanted to enter in a special challenge.  I used some flowers purchased from I am roses.  I used my scallop and large circle from Spellbinder.  I used as well a great butterfly die from Cheery Lynn design - DL266.  I added some pearls to it.

Here's a closer look at the stamp that I colored with my copics.  The sky was done with some salty ocean distress ink.  The great sentiment is from Create with TLC.
Here's the great sketch that I followed:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Sweet-sunday-sketch-challenge - Sketch
  2. Elisabeth bells world challenge blog - Summer
  3. Digi bells dt - GDT call
  4. Cheery lynn designs - In Stitches - did faux ones
  5. Pile it on challenge - Add some flowers
  6. Moving along with the times - Girls just want to have fun
  7. Sweet stampin challenge blog - Pretty in pink
That's it for me for tonight!!!  Wish me luck please for this GDT... it would be such a dream!  Hope it's pretty enough for this!
