Stampin' Celebration Challenge

This afternoon I finally found some time to do some stamping, if you missed my regular posting it was because we had guests & then spent a lovely 4 days in Sydney with the family. Hubby had vouchers from his 50th Birthday one was to climb the Harbour Bridge & the other a gorgeous Seafood dinner in Darling Harbour, hubby enjoyed the Bridgeclimb & our Seafood dinner was divine. We stayed at Star City for the first time & could not fault the service or facilities or accommodation, enough waffling I am sure you would all like to see the card.

The card is for the Stampin' Celebration Challenge they have a new look blog so pop on over & check them out. I just loved the colours from the picture & new immediately that i just had to have balloons somewhere, bringing it all together was a challenge.

I paper pieced Bella's clothes as well as all the balloons, I also added crystal effects to the balloons & the icing on the cupcake for definition. I really love how she turned out it, looks like she is ready to attend the party in the picture.
I would love to here what you think so please do leave a comment.

 On another note here in Australia we are having the most devastating floods in 37 years with 3/4 of Queensland under water, as well as flooding in NSW, Victoria, South Australia & Tasmania. Please see previous post as to what Stampin Up are doing & also the special classes I have scheduled with all proceeds going to the Queensland flood appeal. If you would like information or would like to make a donation please click on the link above, it is a QLD government site so not only does it provide a secure site for donations but provides all the up to date information on the floods.
Bye for now
Happy Stamping
