6 Wishes



Well I think if you are in need of 6 year old birthday card ideas, my blog will be the place to come! My youngest daughter has been invited to another party next week and so I went looking for challenge inspiration.

I found another great site called Stacey’s stamping stage and these were the challenge colours. They looked so pretty together and just right for a girly birthday card, so I thought I would give it a try.


I also incorporated these colours into the Stamping 411 sketch challenge for this week. 

I decided to use a set which I have been neglecting a bit, For Everything, because I thought the bold colours would suit it. I stamped the flowers with melon mambo and coloured them in with my pink pirouette crayon.  I’ve only just bought the new crayons and I LOVE them!  I also used my new embosslit Beautiful Wings (aren’t they cute). The little bird is cut out and popped up on a dimensional.




I was looking through all my sentiment sets (and I have quite a few!!!) and nothing seemed right and then I remembered the So Happy For You sale-a-bration set I had just gotten.  I had intended to give it away but it was absolutely PERFECT for this card and I just had to use it.  I think I will be using this one a lot!


Ingredients :

Stamps : For Everything, So happy for you

Card : wild wasabi, melon mambo, shimmery white, pink pirouette

Ink : wild wasabi, melon mambo, stazon

Other : big shot, beautiful wings, timeless type junior alpha, pip taffeta ribbon, crayons
