Birthday Wishes

I have a fun card to share with you today!  A few weeks ago I won the Wee Memories Challenge and the prize was a stamp set of my choice from There She Goes stamps!  FUN!!  I chose a birthday set with TONS and I mean TONS of options!  The cake on this card is from that set! 


I had so much fun coloring this cake! Can you imagine how many ways this thing can be colored!?  The candles on the top of the cake are all separate images AND the base that the cake is sitting on is a separate image too (there are 3 bases to choose from in this set).  Want to see what this set looks like?  Click HERE!

I colored the cake with copics and then went back with a white gel pen and added the beads over the top.  I also used a spica clear glitter pen on the candles but you can't really see that in this picture.


Isn't that banner so fun!  Ahhhhh...I LOVE this banner set from PTI!! LOVE I tell you! I've been waiting for a banner set just like this with matching dies for so long!!  :)  See that triangle of pearls in the corner of my sentiment...I was thinking of my good friend Laurie as I added those there!  She's the queen of placing pearls! :)  I thought it needed them because of the beading on the cake.

I'm keeping this short today because it is time for bed!  Since my husband is the pastor, I better not fall asleep in church tomorrow or I'd never hear the end of it! :)  Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a good day!

  13. Looks like you chose your winning stamp set well, Jen. Beautiful coloring and details -- and the banner was a great addition. I received my set before Thanksgiving, but just had a chance to prepare it for use last night. Hopefully it'll see some ink today. :) Thanks for the tip on The Twinery sale, too -- I hopped over there right away to spend some $$. :)

  17. Soooo cute, Jen! And great choice of colors. I have trouble with that impression plate - has yours warped at all so that the other side starts to come through when you emboss the opposite side, by any chance? I love the banners!!

  18. Love the twine. I was going to ask about that. I will be getting the sample back soon I hope. Spent a little much on Christmas gifts so probably have to wait. Do you like the clear stamps.
