Birthday Lala

Just cannot believe it... I made this card in just 4 hrs... one evening... amazing... I usually take atleast a couple of days before I can make something substantial.... But there was something about this stamp from Lala Land. Just so pretty that i did not have to do much to make the card look beautiful.
I tried to make it look as if she is just about to enter the party hall with a bunch of presents for the birthday girl/boy...
I wanted to make something for my pretty Sister In Law whose birthday is coming up soon and this card is going to be just right to send her. Just want to make a pretty envelope to go along.
I have used Birthday Lala from Lalaland Stamps... from my favorite craft teacher Irina... who has inspired me to enter this amazing world of paper crafting. Thank you Irina.
I have colored the image with copic markers..
The punches are from Martha Stewart and Ek Success.

Pink + 1 Challenge @ Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges

This is my first card for Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges as the DT member and I hope I did justice to this lovely cupcake Digital Stamp. It is available for free here.
The challenge for this week is a colour challenge... Pink + 1 colour. So I have chosen Pink + Brown. It was really a easy one.
I Printed the image thrice. Twice on Bazzil Basics Coconut Swirl paper and once on the brown and pink dp by BO Bunny. Cut the Square with the nestabilities die and coloured the cake with the copic markers. Then on the second image on white paper I coloured only the strawberry and then put a layer of glaze on the top. I cut it and placed it on the original image with foam tape to add dimension. Then from the third on the dp I cut out only the cupcake wrapper and scored all the lines with stylus to show some depth. I am happy it is showing in the photographs.

And here is my card voila... Embellished with pearls from Mark Richards which i again colored with the copics.. And some ribbons.
here is the inside of the card..
