Winter birthdays

Now the Christmas rush is over I have been able to concentrate on a few birthday cards that are needed in the next few days. This first one is for one of my daughters. I only just managed to get a couple of pics before it went out the door.
I used one of the stamps that was in a fantastic gift from a very dear friend, I know it's a sweet pea stamp but haven't yet looked up the name. An Easel card.

After colouring in the image in promarkers, I fussy cut it out and stuck to the image I had already stamped onto the Crafty Companions BP. The frame stuck onto that made from irridesant pink and pearlised gold CS. Some dots of stickles to complete.
The swirls are made from diecut heart shapes, cut and twisted after painting with pearlised paints and secured with brads. The ribbons are from Crafty Feelings. The sentiment came as part of a freebie set of diecuts in a mag. The little pearls from stash.
All mounted on lime green CS.
Now that I have a couple of SweetPea stamps, I can enter their challenges. This card is being entered into the current challenge over at In A SweetPea Dream of "ribbons and bows".
