TLT - M Pee's Challenge - Birfday

Boy oh boy did I get last week's challenge wrong! And when did I realise? Sunday night!!! I was commenting Diane's post and she was talking about circles, squares and triangles and I thought what the heck is she going on about? Oops...quickly had a look at my card and not a circle, square or triangle in sight lol. That's what you get for either being in a hurry or needing an eye test asap! When I read the challenge list I just saw shapes and thought perfect...I've got a shape and went on my merry way lol. Thankfully M Pee didn't get it right either but then she had an excuse as she'd been unwell. Well that's a lesson learned :-0 Just as well I'm the boss otherwise I'd have to sack myself rofl!!

Thank you to everyone who entered our Shapes - CIRCLES, TRIANGLES AND SQUARES challenge. all have excellent eyesight lololol. You can see if you're the winner of the overall challenge, winner using an LCI image or a Top 3 over at the Challenge Blog.

So onto today's challenge which comes via our very lovely Mary Poppin's herself aka M Pee (don't ask!) aka Michele! It's great to have M Pee back..we all really missed her...especially her one liners. Oh...did you know it's her birfday real soon?? 

Michele's challenge of Birthday is one of my favorites (yes I did read and re-read to make sure I hadn't missed anything!) and this month I've got quite a few...especially on the 26th!! I think I have 5 that day so I have tried very hard to craft in between everything else to keep my tardiness to a minimum so you've all been warned lol.

I used Watering Can Delight for the birthday card I made for my  co-ordinator extraordinaire Lisa. Her birthday was on Saturday and although the card was made way back last week it only got posted yesterday (did you expect anything less lol?) so I'm hoping it arrives today before she sees my post.

This is what I came up with...

I used my new Basic Grey lush Kissing Booth paper was SO hard to choose which pp to use. I also used my new Die namics wonky scallop border (sorry Catherine!) and stitched the whole thing together. Using my Copics I colored the image though I brought out my Prisma pencils for the grass as I haven't quite mastered grass with my Copics yet. 

Glamour dust was added to the butterflies and flowers and Glossy Accents to the ladybugs

Yummy rolled roses with Swarovski pearls (yes, THOSE pearls I keep harping on about) added to the centers and leaves from my Flower Trio with a birthday sentiment finish it off.

It's really pretty IRL and I hope you like it Lisa :-D

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Die Cutting Divas - Pearls, Pins and/or Punches and Diecut (Spellbinders oval, lacy ovals and Die Namics rolled roses)

Love to Create - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Truly Madly Crafty Challenge - Handmade Flowers

I think I'm going to spend a few hours on the wedding favours. Hopefully it won't be long before they're finished and I can tick another box :-D

Thanks for stopping by today

Catch ya later x
