Sharon do not look here...yet!

At least not until after Sunday as hopefully by then the postie will have delivered you this card and you'll already have seen it!

This is my entry for this weeks challenge at The Secret Crafter - their theme is 'Celebration' and Sharon's turning 50 this weekend so what better celebration? Well a place on the Design Team at Secret Crafter would be a huge celebration and that's one of the prizes up for grabs this week!!

I based this card on the sketch at Stampavie and More as it was perfect for this image of Birthday Anya. I chose her because I know Sharon likes cute cards and I figured I could add a little sophistication with the colours etc. I've shaded with ProMarkers (new fabby colours) and added a little Glossy Accents to the cake on Anya to make the icing shiny along with some glitter gems. I stamped the image three more times before cutting out and layering at different levels around the corner.

I can't believe I've used a peel off sticker but I have (!), I went over it with a purple pen first as didn't have anything else handy to use with 50 on. I printed the simple sentiment on the PC on some lush textured pink card I got from the Paper Mill Shop. I popped the background cards through the bug using Victoria and Flowers embossing folders, finishing off with a punched border and a bow, I was aiming for a kind of sassy design here!

I'm off shopping with Sue tomorrow and then a spot of crafting with her in the afternoon, seems ages since we had a whole day together and I can't wait. I will be catching up on visiting your blogs today and tomorrow too, I've got a bit behind - sorry!

OK, all I can do now is cross my fingers for Secret Crafter! Good luck if you're having a go too.
