New Divas Challenge - Happy Birthday

Hello blogging friends...

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Divas by Design. The theme for this week is a nice and easy

'Happy Birthday'

Our sponsor this week is Shape EZ by TLC (with Whimsy Stamps)
The DT got to choose a template to use and I chose the Cherry Cupcake.

I'm really pleased with the results. It's a lovely fun shape and something a little bit different.

The image on the front of the card is Mo Manning's Cupcake Thief. This is the first time I've coloured her and she was fun to do. She's been coloured in my usual Copics. 
When I get a little more time (lol) I must give Prismacolors a go. I've only ever used them on small areas over my Copics. There's been a lot of lovely coloured images in Blogland using them.

Copics used:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, R21
Dress: R81, R83, R85
Cake bases: YR20, E11, E13, E15, E18
Frosting: RV000, R81, R83, R85 
                   R000, R01, E93, E95, E97
                 Y000, Y00, YG01, YG03
Cherry: R22, R24, R27, R39
Mask: C1, C3, C5, C7
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57

The papers are First Edition 'Bird Song' and the sentiment is from LOTV Everyday Grungy Messages. I've added a gorgeous selection of flowers from WOC (did you bag a bargain in their 30% off sale?),rhinestones and a satin ribbon and slider from The Hobby House.
The big cherry on the top has been coated with Glamour Dust followed by a liberal coating of Glossy Accents.

I do hope you can join us. We love to see your wonderful creations.
Why not pop on over to Divas by Design and see what lovely creations my teamies have made.
