You're too kind

Hello and Happy Stamping!
I actually squeezed in a card midweek this week! Crazy! The last few months I've been barely getting my design team work done.....it's nice to be able to find a few extra hours to make an extra card.
Anyways, I started making this card for some design work due next week...but I kept tweeking the sketch until I finally ended up with a card that was a little too far from the original sketch.
Love this Tilda image! I got it from the Magnolia-licious site HERE...it really is the best place to get these adorable images! I colored Tilda in with my copics.
The cupcake is from a set I purchased from my LSS-with my 35% off coupon...gotta LOVE those! The set is called Big Cake Set and it is A Darcies Stamp set....check them out HERE
I colored in the cupcake with Copics and then I added some chunky doodlebug sugar coating to it-yummy!

The paper is We R Memory Keepers-Twirl
The sentiment is SU! And if you are from Canada you can get it HERE. Shelly is a good friend of mine that I've know for a couple of decades and she is a SU! demonstrator.
I made a mask for Tilda and then airbrushed the background.
The nestie shape is BRAND NEW...and I love it! It's called the Big Scalloped Square-I have both the small and large size sets. The new 2010 spring spellbinders are so awesome-can't wait to save up my $ and get some more!
The flowers are prima and the brads are basic grey.
I found some new bling flourishes at Michael's Craft store-they are a bit cheaper than the prima brand. They are Michael's brand-Recollections. The flourishes are actually perfect for cards because the swirls are smaller-very easy to cut up. I also was able to use a coupon on them-I think it was 30% off my entire purchase so they were less than a 1.50 each! Yummy!

Thanks for stopping by today...have a nice day!
