Sweet Birthday Lili card for my friend

Hi all, welcome to our  Inky Impressions Challenge and this is our second week of our Black, White plus one colour, now I know I haven't followed the challenge  (this is my free week) as I wanted to create this card for my friend Hazel whom I left behind in England (we used to walk together most Wednesday whatever the weather, as you can image I have gained a pound or two since!!).  Just had to use this yummy ribbon from Crafty Ribbons to match my gorgeous Inky Impressions 'Birthday Lili' and my new The Sweet with Glitter papers stack from DCWV.  Now Hazel likes things plain and not too fussy so have kept the card that way.  Though I seemed to have got carried away with my Kindyglitz lol! (used it on the cakes, strawberry and large swirl)

Lili is coloured using Copics and Spica pens for the cake.  Now please do not look to close at her left eye, thought the special effects was dry and turned her over to stick the pop up stickers on and messed her eye up I have had to try and rectify by peeling the special effects off and using a multiliner, I just didn't have time to colour her again, I am just too slow, just can't wait to get faster and much better at colouring lol!

A closer look at the spica coloured cake and nails

Now some good news my DT Stamps have arrived yesterday!  WOO HOO they are so gorgeous and can't wait to get creating using them.

Don't forget to pop on over to the  Inky Impressions Challenge blog and see the gorgeous creations the DT have made using Nicole's gorgeous new Inky Images, there are some cute animal images in this Winter Release too!
