Birthday Wishes

Today is my oldest brothers birthday and I remembered to make him a card!!  It even managed to get in the mail, but the timing may be a little off!

I started with Taylor's sketch from Friday (TESC134) and used TE's Whimsical Wishes Make a Wish stamp set.  I stamped the cake plate & cake onto neenah ultra smooth paper and coloured them with copics.  I used a clear glaze pen on the plate to give it the look of glass.  On the cake I used some crystal stickles on the top icing, an atyou spica pen fro the swirls.  On the bottom layer of the cake I used the clear atyou spica pen on the circles and for the icing along the bottom I used adirondacks dimensional pearls is espresso.  I paper pieced both the cake plate and cake onto the cream oval, the cake I popped up with dimensionals.

The ds paper is from my stash of BG 6x6 pads called arcahic - this is a favourite of mine for masculine cards.  I added some chocolate ribbon and  some bella dots (they weren't the exact brown I wanted to I coloured them with copics & presto a perfect shade!!) - I did forget to round the corners, but aside from that I was true to the sketch!

Thanks for stopping by- have a fantastic day


copics: e44, e47, e49, yr13, tr15, b0000, b000, e40, e41, e42
