Birthday Celebration

Todays card is made with the simple but cute sketch CCMC145 from Create with Connie and Mary.  I used the On a Pedestal Stamp Set, Celebrations Designer Series Paper and Celebrations Quick Accents to make a colorful and fun birthday card!


The color scheme of Real Red, Bashful Blue, Pacific Point and Pear Pizzazz came straight from the Celebrations DSP.  The striped piece beneath the cake layer is a Quick Accent, as well as the Red "Ric-Rac" layered on it and the Pear Scallops to the right of the focal cake layer.  These accents are self-adhesive so you can pull together a design quickly and easily.


I colored the cake stamp with markers to get the two-toned effect, then added the Pear Pizzazz candles.  Dazzling Diamonds brings the bling to the focal point cake and flames for a fun card!

Must run so post is short today!  Thanks for visiting me!
