Pile It On Flutter Birthday

Today's card was made for several challenges, including Pile It On's Challenge #6, which is a super fun sketch created by Dalis:

And here's my take on it:

For the sentiment, I followed this tutorial by Debbie Olson. I stamped the letters at different heights to mimic the look of those cute little letter stickers that everyone's using but I'm too cheap to buy! I colored Flutter Anya with Copics and glittered her wings with my usual Stardust/water brush method, then cut her out and popped her up on foam tape. She's got tiny heart rhinestones on her wings, and a little Prima flower with a homemade flocked brad in her hair. I also glittered the little flower.

Here's a closer shot of her:

And now for the challenges:
  • Pile It On - Challenge #6 Sketch #1.
  • 365 Cards - Challenge #132 Picture This. I was inspired to make a birthday card and I think the sentiment looks like candles on a cake.
  • Belli Challenge - Challenge #69 Texture. I used a piece of velvet ric rac and I also flocked the brad in her hair.
  • Stamp Simply - Challenge #95 Let the Sparks Fly. I glittered the flower and her wings.
Only 4 challenges today, but that's fine with me! I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; patterned paper - Basic Grey (Urban Prairie 6x6 paper pad); alphabet stamps - CTMH; Spring Moss ink - Papertrey Ink; velvet ric rac - May Arts; D'Vine Swirls embossing folder - Provo Craft; Petite Oval Nestabilities.
