April Unity {be INSPIRED} Challenge!

We're going out to celebrate a friend's birthday tonight and she loves handmade things, so I had to finally use a Fashionista stamp for the first time and put this together for the April {be INSPIRED} Challenge. I decided to go with the card sketch part of the challenge:


Pretty simple--which I like! I was daunted about all the coloring here, but I think it came out cute. :)


This was also my first attempt at paper piecing!I'm pretty proud of that fussy cut along the hem of her dress. ;) My favorite part of this card is her glittery shoes!


I also added some other glitter touches to her dress and the cake, but the shoes are just too cute. I used Stampin' Up! Dazzling Details in Silver Sparkle. The other thing I love about this card is that, since the stamp set came with three sentiments, one was really perfect for the inside of the card:



I can't wait to give this card away tonight! The stamp set I used was Sabrina {fashionista} by Tarcey Malnofski.


Now I've got to go get ready for tonight. Thanks for stopping by! :)
