Birthday Cake

TSSC268Oh NEW stuff just makes me happy!  And Mary Jo’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge just made me grab all new STUFF!!!

And as you can tell I’m really CELEBRATING!!!  That’s because I’ve posted a really cool Paper Bag Mini Album and am giving away BLOG CANDY AND a free downloadable tutorial!  Check out my post here!

The base of the card is Raspberry Ripple.  I took a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the Birthday Cake using Crisp Cantaloupe.  Next I stamped the greeting from Remembering Your Birthday using Bermuda Bay and Raspberry Ripple.  I cut three prints from the Birthday Basics dsp into banners, added to the panel and wrapped a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around it.  I added the panel to the card base using dimensionals.  Finally I added some Basic Rhinestones to the cake for just a little bling!


And my card looks just like this one as long as you are laying on your side while you are looking at the sketch  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!
