Happy Birthday Baby Katie!!

Today is my niece's birthday, and I wanted to make her an extra special birthday card for her!! Happy Birthday Katie, I love you so much!!! Katie, actually Katelyn, is the youngest of my little sisters children, and she is as sweet as can be. She has quite the personality, and every time she spends the night, there is never a dull moment. Her party is tomorrow, so I HAD to get her card done today, nothing like waiting until the last minute!! I used my new stamps I got yesterday from Starving Artistamps. I am sure I had seen some of Starving Artistamps stamps before she started using them, but my recent NEED to purchase was fueled by the SUPER cute creations from Donna Baker. She does such wonderful things with their images and was recently asked to join their design team, YOU GO GIRL!!! Anyway, I stamped my Princess Winifred image from the Doodlefactory Fairytale collection with Black Stazon on Whisper White. I then colored her in with my SU markers. The sketch is the first sketch that was issued in the Verve stamps Anni-Verve-sary celebration. There are twelve sketches and I only have one sketch done....I don't think I am gonna make it, but I am gonna try!! I paired Winifred with a sentiment from the Verve Stamps set, All About You. I used a ton of silver brads and some white taffeta from SU. The scallops were made with my new scallop punch from SU. I ran the white panel and the pink "awning" and triangles through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss dots folder(I stamped the sentiment first). That is it for me for now, I am off to try to stamp some more!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
