It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To

Do you know/remember that song?  Its such a fun song!  Its not from my era, but I love it!  I'm adding a link here so you can listen to the original version by Lesley Gore.  My kids were not familiar with the song... I guess they don't listen to me sing!  lol

Anyway....  that's the song that popped into my head when I saw this great image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The challenge over there this week is: Inspired by Song and this is what I came up with:

Sorry for the lousy lighting... I have to work on my photography skills! 
Isn't she a cutie?  I suppose I wouldn't feel that way if she were my little girl throwing a fit like that, but she's so cute to look at  :)  She is called two Tasha and her caption is: Tasha is two.  Very true.   lol

This is my first card using my new Prismacolor pencils.  I bought the 132 ct set from Dick Blick.  The price was amazing and it was shipped very quickly.  I was very pleased.  I know I need a ton of practice with my new pencils, but I am excited about the results on this card.
I had this little stamp "the Little Princess" from a dollar set at Joanns.  I've never used it, but I thought it was appropriate for this card  :)  She's anything but a princess right now, huh?

I added lots of sparkle to her tutu and tiara with Stickles.  The design paper is from the Lost and Found Collection by My Mind's Eye.  Great papers... lots of glitter all over the studio now  :)

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Mo's Digital Pencil too - Inspired by Song
Tip Top Tuesday - Designer Paper
Truly Scrumptious - Distressing
Ribbon Carousel - Sparkle and Bling
CLP - Sketch

I guess that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs
