Yep, today's my birthday. So in honor of this special day I thought I would make myself a birthday card! lol, plus I needed a card to post so killing two birds with one stone as the saying goes. So do I feel any older? No! Do I feel any fatter? Yep! Too much food over the last week, and today I have a home made carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and this is not a WW friendly cake.
Okay, on with my card. I have loved this cute image ever since it was released but just never had a chance to color her up. It's a Stamping Bella image called
Little Peeps Birthday Cake.
So what do you think, cute eh? I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and colored her up with pencils, not my prismacolor pencils but my new Caran d'Ache pencils!! OMG I love them, the color choices you have and they color and blend so smoothly! So, back to the card - used my oval s/binder die to cut out the image as well as the scallop layer. I left the die in place and sponged some spring pansy versamagic ink around the image, stitched around the oval, then layered this onto some pretty papers by Memory Box. Of course, had to use a Martha Stewart border punch - vintage floral as well. To finish it off I used some glossy accents for the flame on the candles, pearls for the flowers and of course glitter. And... did you notice my 'watermark'? Pretty cool eh? no I didn't do it, my son Mark did it for me yesterday.
Well, that's it for me for today. Think I will go for a much needed walk - the wind is very cold, but the sun is shining so brightly.
Have a great day everyone. Till next time....
