Card Positioning Systems - Girlie Birthday


I am getting on with all these challenges this week, this is another sketch, for CPS. The dress stamp is by Stampendous, picked up for a bargain $1.50 in a closing down sale, the papers are the lovely taupes by Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is studio G. I used a fine line glue pen to outline the detail on the dress and then sprinkled with ice diamond glitter.


Which brings me to - I went to Sephora to stock up on some bare escentuals make up, found what I wanted and presented my card. The sales assistant (very young) said "I like your make up, what do you use?", well I was bare faced apart from my eyes and a bit of lippy, so felt a bit confused. She went on, chattily "when I use sparkle highlights it goes all over my face and I feel like a diva, but yours is really nice, just a little bit of sparkle on your nose and cheekbones" Ah Ha! The light went on............yes, the glitter fairy has been here again.

Too funny! I'm always covered in glitter when I use it. Guess that's why I love Stickles so much. It kind of traps the loose stuff.

The card is very pretty too!
