Birthday Cake

TSSC283Happy Monday!  Boy…I could have used a couple more days to my weekend… that would have been sooo nice!  I have been busy working on projects for the upcoming sessions of Create with Connie and Mary Winter Collection 2013.  I did get my Preview Project done and can’t wait to share it with you NEXT MONDAY!!!  So make sure you come back then!

But THIS Monday I have another card for Mary Jo’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  This one WAS a challenge and I had to think and think and think.  Finally I turned the sketch on it’s side and it worked out just right!

The base of the card is Raspberry Ripple.  I took a piece of Crumb Cake and stamped the Birthday Cake in Crumb Cake, then I stamped the greeting using Bermuda Bay and Raspberry Ripple.  I took a piece of the the balloon print and cut into 1/2″ strips, cut them into banners then added to the card front.  I layered this on a piece of Very Vanilla, tied a piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around it the added to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I added a couple of Basic Rhinestones to add just a little bling to it.

TSSC283As you can see I did sort of follow this sketch if you look at it sideways!  I think that’s the best part about doing sketch challenges…it gives you a place to start!  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!

  3. You are so talented, I love the sketch flipped on the side and that balloon paper is so cute with the cake and multicolored sentiment. Awesome job. Thanks so much for being a part of the TSSC team.
