Eat Cake Card

One can never have enough birthday cards, can they? This is such a cute set! I only used two of the stamps in it. I wanted to try to add balloons to the card but it got too busy looking. I'll have to play with it again sometime and work with the balloons!

For this card I used Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock. I also used a small piece of the new Petals & Paisleys decorative paper! I think I've run out of those two sheets now. They're my favorite in the pack and you can bet I'll be ordering another pack!!! I used the linen background stamp and Regal Rose ink pad but I did stamp off once because it was just too dark! I sponged the edges, remember, sponging is my favorite technique!!! I use a bit of Crystal Effects on the flames and a bit of the Dazzling Diamond Dust too. Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip markers were used for the cake and cake stand. For the candles I used Sage Shadow only because of the green dot showing on the decorative paper! Silly reason but it seemed to work and I always say "you gotta go with what works!" I added a couple of buttons and put it all together!! Viola a Birthday card!!!
