It's my birthday! And I've decided that I should jump on board with all these lovely blog candy giveaways... so I've decided that I shall draw a random number from the comments of this post. The prize, an envelope packed full of birthday scraps. I recently cleaned and organized my craft desk and I've got a whole packet full of cupcakes and ice cream cones and other fun birthday stamped images. I wish I had fun real blog to give away, but considering how much I love sending mail, I figured this was the next best thing. Who knows what sort of birthday card you'll be inspired to make with my scraps?
So, in an effort to attract as many of you to this post I've made a birthday card that I can enter in a number of challenges. The sketch for this card is from The Sweetest Thing's Sunday Sketch. The colors are from Curtain Call- it's all Stacey's fault that I made the cake these colors, b/c she suggested it on her challenge (and now that I look at it, I'm thinking these are not my colors at all!). The pendants are from this week's Etsy Inspired challenge. Birthday challenges include: Everybody Art Challenge, Terrifically Thrilling Thursdays (celebrations), Crafty Creations (ice cream & cakes). Anything goes: Wee Memories. and Pile it On (favorite things- I can't say I love these colors, but I do love my Fiskars rotary cutter with the scallop blade, I use it all the time- so easy to spruce up a piece of paper with one little cut).
I used the digital image I won from the Character Cafe from their challenge last week, thanks guys! (It was a wedding cake, I just adapted it for my needs.)
Materials: The Character Cafe digital image, card stock from my stash, white gel pen, Paper Source circle punch, Fiskars rotary cutter with scallop blade
