Celebrate Your Big Day with Cake

Next week will be here before you know it and my niece will be getting this fun card for her birthday.  She is turning eight next week, and I wanted to celebrate that with the eight candles I stamped on this card.  She is getting her ears pierced for her birthday and I can’t wait to surprise her with some new earrings to add to her collection.  The candles played nicely on the yellow strip for the Freshly Made Design Challenge (FMS233) this week.

These challenges are always fun and can help spark your creativity vs. just starting from scratch.  I added a little texture to this card by using The Chalk Talk framelit and the piercing tool for the border of the tag.  The color combination went together nicely with the  blackberry bliss and the hello honey paper I selected.  I also enjoyed using some fun background paper by adding in a piece of designer paper from the Moonlight Designer Series stack.

  1. I love how you interpreted the sketch! The fun circles on the background have a cool bokeh effect and adding eight candles for your niece is such a nice touch! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
