SISC15 Birthday Cake Inspired


Good morning, my blogging friends. I have a fun card to share with you all today. This card is for StampInsanity Challenge #15. We were asked to pick one of these cakes and use it as inspiration to make a birthday card. I picked the second one because it is more my style.

I colored Nicholette to match the cake. I found this awesome sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday #55. After I found the sketch I pulled out my pattern papers and this scrap of polka dot ribbon. This card sort of threw itself together from there. My 11 year old daughter told me I needed to line the bottom of the card with pearl so it would look like the cake. Well, there was no way I had enough pearls to do that but her little idea inspired me to add the pearls on the sides. The sprays of stars behind the flower are from a piece of left over Christmas garland that I had used in another project. Thanks for stopping bye.
Supplies:
SU card stock half pearls and rub on sentiment
Making Memories Pattern Papers
Bling from Michael's dollar bin
Copics: E000, E27, E29, E35, E51, E53, BG01, BG02, BG05,
BG09, C1, C3, C5, C7, 100, B02, R05, and R02
