I am so behind in cards for my family with November birthdays. My older sister's birthday was the first week of November, and I just got her card made. I have 3 others to make and mail with gifts. I'm usually very timely, but so much was going on last month that I just got behind. I'm showing it here before I mail it because she doesn't look at my blog. Here it is:
I used Stamploration's Vignette It's Your Day stamp and colored the cake with Spectrum Noir markers. I think the wonky cake is fun. I managed a bit of shading - still working on my technique. I cut the image with a Spellbinders die and dusted it with both yellow and brown chalk before removing it from the die. I matted it and added a border from a Martha Stewart punch to one side of the matting. The happy birthday is a Cricut cut gifted to me by a friend. I added some bling and a burgundy ribbon to match the sentiment. The white frosting has some glitter added with WOS and a Stardust Jelly Roll pen.
I actually won this stamp set and 5 others in July at Stamplorations Birthday Blog Hop. I will be using the other stamps soon - they are great.
I'm entering these challenges: Less is More - Celebrations; Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - December; Seize the Birthday - Option Leaves; and Stamplorations Anything Goes Challenge.
