Happy Birthday Cake

Hi everyone!  Today there is a new sketch at Delightful Inspiration.  This week we are on I{Heart}Sketches No 9.  The sketch is a standard A2 size but I adapted it to fit a 5x5 square card.  

The image used on today's card is the Happy Birthday Cake digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps.  After coloring the image I cropped and mounted it over the square backdrop.  There are new spring stamps in the store and if you haven't already you'll want to sign up for the newsletter so you get the inside scoop on any specials!

My card base is Blue Bayou layered with White Cardstock and Sprinkles Patterned Paper. The strip is Spumoni Patterned Paper layered on White Cardstock. The backdrop is White Cardstock squares layered on Blue Bayou. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  I cropped the image and adhered it over the square backdrop using mounting tape. To embellish the card I added lots os stitching, cheesecloth and a pretty bow as well as some strips of grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
