Birthday Girls

       Hi friends, Leah Schaeffer here to share my favorite PPPR project to date! Hope you like it as well! This sweet little card did pretty well at my county fair as well! Yay for ribbons! I created this in particular for my youngest sister who turned 25 (whoa, I've had this card for almost 2 months without posting it yet! How could I stand that! LOL!)
    Ok, well onto the card! 

   As darling at this little girl was, I wanted to give her a different hair do. Something a bit more ethnic feeling. Easy to do with the extra files the shop has! You'll see the example below with the photos of the cutting files I used. 

   Oh my! The shine! This card is so pretty! No matter what I tried, I couldn't get the sparkle to really shine for the photos. But the shirt, hair bow and yellow on the cake are covered in Wink of Stella. Not to mention the bling-ed out background! 

   The starburst cutting files are some of my favs in the shop. How I only came up with this idea now, I have no idea. It took some serious time but I did the background in steps. The darker shade was shaped with a star background pattern and dusted with Perfect Pearls. The lighter shade was stamped and dusted but with a different stamp and color of Perfect Pearls. Then over all that, I used a balloon stencil with Versamark. It was my first time using an embossing powder that once heated turns sticky. That was the perfect base for all that glitter! This background is easily my favorite background I've ever created! 

   Okay, now let me share the files I used!
