A Sparkly, Leggy Happy Birthday

Hey everyone!  It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend here already and it’s barely half over.  In between birthday parties, I needed to whip up something for one of my daughter’s friends.  This friend is always super sparkly and girly so what better image than to use Uptown Girl Posh Has a Present by Stamping Bella!

I love these leggy girls!  When I was little I had a couple dolls like this (similar to Barbies but all legs). I can’t remember what they were called but I think I still have one packed away somewhere.  I loved it.  Maybe that’s why these Uptown Girls just call to me.  :)

After coloring with Copics, I added lots of glitter using Spica glitter pens.  I used Buttermilk on her hair and the dots on the gift bag with clear on her dress.  Molly loved it.  :)

I didn’t have ribbon to match the blue-ish cardstock so I dyed seam binding with a Copic.  Super easy.

I’ll be back later this week with new releases from both Kraftin Kimmie and My Favorite Things.  Lots of new things in store(s)!  :)

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great day!
