This is the first one I finished; it's for a friend who celebrated his 60th b-day this week & I am meeting him for lunch Thursday :)
I used the sketch found on Stephanie's blog. For this card I used SU's Happy Everything and Bitty Birthday stamps. To make the card masculine I used SU's Night of Navy CS and Basic Grey's "granola" DS paper. I added SU's apricot ribbon, which looks yellow and used So Saffron to mount the cake on. The image is coloured with copics and I used Liquid Applique for the icing on the cake. I like stamping my words on ribbon and this layout worked perfectly for that.
Since the base was Night of Navy I decorated the inside of my card. I mounted SU's whisper white on SU's basic grey and then used SU's photo corner punch with some of the DS paper. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy & is from the Bitty Birthday set.
I'm finishing off 3 more sketches so I will be back on Thursday to post them - remember if you are taking part all posts have to be on SCS by this evening
Thanks for stopping by - the others should be up soon :)
