By keeping things simple, I was able to create two cards in my ‘spare’ moments on Friday. This card today was created for the Color Throwdown #240 and Seize the Birthday #16 challenges. I flipped the sketch upside down.
I wanted to use my neglected Big Wish stamp set by Verve, which has this lovely little cake image. I used each of the specified colors on that one little image (though you might have to look closely to spot the apricot and limeade!) and then used a glitter pen to add a few strokes of sparkle to it – on the candle flames, the flourishes on the cake, and the flower petals.
The card base is Smokey Shadow, and I used Wisteria Wonder for a mat layer. The top portion of the main white panel was embossed with PTI’s By The Number impression plate, and I tied a knot of Aqua Mist ribbon to hide the dividing line. The sentiment is from Wplus9’s Embroidered Bouquet stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
