Birthday Cake

Happy Thursday everyone and we have a special Challenge for you this time for the CCMC260Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  Since convention is right around the corner, and both Connie and I are going – WOOO HOOO!!!  we are having a special 2 WEEK CHALLENGE!  But…to make it special…we have a color challenge AND a sketch challenge.  But there’s more…for the sketch challenge…you need to make it a shaped card…anything but a square or rectangle!  As you can see…I decided to do both!

I used the Oval Accents die for the Base.  I folded a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe in half then ran through the die.  I then took a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Corrdinations, ran it through the die, then ran it through the Stripes Embossing folder, sanded it then added to the card base.  I added a Calypso Coral Deco Label framelit piece using Dimensionals, then a Whisper White Oval.  I stamped the greeting of Pistachio Pudding using Basic Grey and added it and a Calypso Coral dotted banner to the card front.  I stamped the cake using Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Calypso Coral, cut out and added using dimensionals.  I finished it off with some Basic Rhinestones
