Birthday Card





Hi everyone! Here is a card that I made for several challenges. I cut all the images from Birthday Bash. The cake only had 1 candle on it and I wanted 3, so I cut the original candle off and cut out 3 separate candles from a different page. I used my swiss dots folder to emboss the cake layers and the candles. I finished it with a ribbon and the stamped sentiment is from SU. This card is so much prettier in person. It got washed out looking in the photos. Here are the challenges that I am entering this card into:
1. Paper Playtime- Use only black, white, and silver
2. Peachy Keen- Sketch
3. Scrappy Moms Stamps- Birthday Bash

Lovin this one! A while back I was looking for a birthday card for a friend. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
