Tiddly Inks "Happy Birthday" Challenge

Hello! I'm back! I have been out of commission this past week; I was first hit with an extreme case of vertigo which triggered the mother of all migraines. I feel like I have lost a week.... I am just thankful the headache is now managable and I am up walking on two feet; I am also thankful to my DH and my Dr. for taking such good care of me. Even the kitties were concerned; funny how animals seem to know when something isn't right....

Today I have a birthday card for this week's Tiddly Inks challenge. We were to make a card or an invite. Since I have a 12 year old daughter, I thought this might be handy for the stash. I used the digital image "Happy Bugg", and I kept the card simple to focus on her cuteness! She's colored with pencils and doused in glitter. I used Martha Stewart's Crystal Fine for the frosting; it has the look of sugar. Art Glitter was applied to her wings, which are super sparkly. Her eyes are dotted with a black gel pen. I used my favorite birthday go-to DP...the numbers collage from American Crafts. The card is finished off with some PTI baker's twine and a candle. DD has given it her stamp of approval...whew!

I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #90...she really has some awesome sketches. Check them out!

Angela, this is adorable! Love the sparkle on the wings, so shimmery and fun. The candle is the perfect accent touch. Hmmm, now I think I need to buy that bakers twine (I was trying to figure out how to use it, this is brilliant),
