Some pretty photo inspiration for you

Good morning all

Well after yesterdays fiasco I'm here with a post today (with 2 to catch up on for yesterday!!)   Thank you all for the advice - I still haven't solved my blogger upload problems but I eventually managed to get my images uploaded last night by using my sons Apple mac and the only saving grace of that is as I use dropbox at least I can upload my images then just access them anywhere.  My son was delighted when I took over his desk to upload pictures at half past midnight last night while he went to bed - so as you can imagine thats not happening to often!!

Anyway on with todays challenge

We have a really pretty challenge for you over at Moving Long With the Times this week
Our lovely Pami is hostess and she has given us some gorgeous photo inspiration

Isn't this just so pretty!

And here's my card
My teamie Carole  used this image in a challenge a couple of weeks ago and when I saw it I knew it was perfect for my daughterAlison's 30th birthday next week.  The sugared almond colours are perfect for this image and as she is a girly girl I know she'll love this card.  This picture will be her on Friday night when she has her birthday night out with friends and family at a local club with a fabulous drag queen show - I've been before  its such a laugh - I'll update you on the proceeding after the week end.  Alisons birthday is always the event of the year as not only is it her birthday but also her husband Stevens birthday - and their 4th wedding anniversary this year- you can imagine the fuss we have to make of it all!!!

So the details of this card ....I wanted to keep it fresh but also use lots of embellies and I was quite pleased with the outcome, i bought those sunflower dies at the MFT shop on my trip yjere last Christmas -its the first time i've used them but it won't be the last - what a gorgeous easy flower it makes, and there are several elements on the die for plenty of variety - I still haven't added a "happy birthday" -the jury's out on what and where its going!! - the inside is also decorated to match with  another image and sentiment from stamping bella image - Opal the optimist- which says - "may your glass be always half full" - very appropriate!!- but I've got enough problems with photos at the minute so its wasn't photographed or uploaded - if I get the chance I'll add it later - just for completeness

This is what I did......

Image - from Stamping Bella uptown girls - Victoria and Juliette's night out
Coloured with spectrum noirs and copics
papers - perfect pair from LOTV
Dies - leaf - magnolia, sunflower and heart- MFT, heart pins obsession impression, numbers tim holtz vintage market, butterfly - whimsy stamps
ribbon - carnmeal cottage

Sparkly bits! - glamour dust

What a stunner Judith - that is 'one' of my most favourite stamps ever for girly girl cards and you have paper pieced it so beautifully.
It is amazing how the same DP's can look so different - great minds think alike though :o)
Have a fab evening.

Hi Judith, what a wonderful image (love the Uptown Girls!) and a fabulous colour combo.

Sounds like your daughter really enjoys her birthdays! I was very moody and grumpy at my 30th (a looong time ago now!!!).
