Happy Days & Sprinkles and Smiles :-)

Happy Weekend!! Hope you're having some nice weather in your part of the world, and hope you'll have some fun things planned! We've  had some wonderful weather the last few days, but supposed to be cloudy today. At least no rain is in the forecast for today :-)

Today's card was made for the midmonth reminder at Penny Black and More. Still some time to play along with us for a chance to win one of the wonderful prizes. You don't have to use a Penny Black stamp to be entered, any brand works, just no digi stamps. 

I got my new stamp set "Happy Days" inky for this card, and used it along with the sentiment set "Sprinkles and Smiles" and my new favorite stencil "Hypnotic".

I stamped the image onto blending card and colored with copics and also used a dark brown pencil for some hair strands. The background was made by inking it with yellow and orange, and then stenciling the design onto it using the "Hypnotic" stencil. Image  has been fussy cut. It's a pretty simple sketch, I just added a strip of designer paper to the top and then some sequins and glitter for embellishment.

Here is what the inside looks like. 

I simply stenciled it using the same stencil, and then stamped another sentiment from the Sprinkles and Smiles set. Added a matching strip of designer paper to the bottom and adhered it onto the card base. The sentiments in that sentiment set are so fun to use!! 

And then here is another peek at cute Mimi :-) 
I used a white Faber Castell Pitt marker to add dots to her cheeks, highlights on the balloon and sprinkles on the cupcake. The dotted "paper" is washi tape.

Products used:
Happy Days (sorry this set just sold out in my shop),
 Sprinkles and Smiles, 
Hypnotic stencil
distress inks, memento ink
SU, xpress it and neenah card stock
washi tape, glitter, sequins
Faber castell pitt marker for white highlights
