Hope Your Birthday is Stylin'!

I have an adorable Cuppie card for you today. I just couldn't resist using the stylin' cuppie from Sweet Indulgence, available at Taylored Expressions. I totally have hair on my brain (bwah ha ha...) because I was at the stylist yesterday and she uses a pink blow dryer just like the cute pink brad I used on this card! Plus, I was at the American Girl store yesterday picking up an outfit for a Christmas gift for my niece...man on man...that place is crazy!!! They even have a hair salon for dolls!!! Can you tell it was the first time I'd set foot in the store? Needless to say I quickly picked up an outfit and made a bee-line for the door before getting sucked into all that cuteness!!!!
Oh wait...I'm supposed to be talking about my card. Well, if people and dolls can go to the hair dresser, why shouldn't Cuppie? LOL!!!

I used today's Splitcoast sketch challenge for the layout, SC254 and I paired it with my fun Spa Key Ingredients. I can honestly say that with the Key Ingredients, I whipped up this card in just 30 minutes because everything is already coordinated for me! LOVE that!!!

Cuppie is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured with copics. I stamped the sentiment below the image then cut it out with rectangle Nestabilities. I added two coats with my clear Glaze pen to the hair dryer and a line of Turquoise Stickles. The cape is paper pieced and I added a pink Multicolour Twinkle to the closure. The rest of the card is super simple. I used my D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder for the base then wrapped some ribbon and secured it with the sweet brad.

I'm off to run some errands now...all the things I didn't get to yesterday because I was indulging in a little hair stylin' myself!

Thanks for stopping by!

How cute!!
We got an American Girl catalog the other day. My daughter went crazy over it..she's 5, there's no way I'm paying that $$ for a doll for a five year old...but they were cute!!

Oh this is such a fun card Karen, and I LOVE the little hairdryer embellishment.
I like that piercing you've been adding, might just try that myself ;-)
