Creative Card Crew - Challenge #31

Good morning peeps, I hope you are all well, fit and happy.
We are so excited to introduce you to our new Guest Designer
who will be joining us for the next three months, we are in for a treat as her cards and projects are awesome.

It is my turn to set the challenge this week with the Creative Card Crew and I have chosen the theme of CELEBRATIONS in honour of my fellow DT´s big FIVE O on the 10th.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARON, enjoy your day sweetie.

Our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe and Regina has kindly donated 3 sets of the winners choice plus she is also giving all Creative Card Crew readers a very special offer
This special deal is for today (only valid on 6th October) and it's open until midnight pacific time. If you order a download set from the Cutting Cafe you can order another set for free as long as it is of equal or lesser value. To qualify for the free set you must write in the order comments on paypal that you've seen this deal on the Creative Card Crew Challenge Blog.
There is also a special prize this week of a 2 week Guest Designer spot and the winner will be chosen at random by Sharon from this weeks entries.

Anyhoo onto my offering for this week!

A close up of her sparkly dress as I have no idea how to enlarge my main card with it being A4 in total length so all help will be appreciated, excuse the shadow - it is so hot and sunny here so can´t be avoided rofl.

My base card is pearlescent and papers from SU, coloured Madison from Charmed Cards & Crafts, with my copics then covered her dress with glamour dust ... well a girl has gotta sparkle on her BIG O doesn´t she? Got my needle and thread out and enjoyed a couple of hours sewing the side panels then heat embossed my sentiment - touched up the roses with copics and some more glamour dust and cut the 50 from my Sizzlets.
