Big cake

Hello again everyone, it's one of those rare days where I have two posts in one day. I had this image already printed out and thought it would be perfect to use for this week's digital pencil challenge where anything goes. 

And then I also wanted to enter into the Catered Crop Challenge, with the theme of "make an impression" (embossing), so I created this clean and simple card. The challenge at CASual friday is a tic tac toe, I chose the row of bling, birthday and diecuts/punches. My bling is a little hard to see, it's in form of glitter on the candles and the flower.

Products used:
  • Stamps: Tall cake digi (Mo Manning), sentiment from set sweet froggies (whimsy stamps)
  • Papers: neenah white, and SU pink
  • Embellishments: prima flowers, brad, flower button, stickles glitter, twine. 
  • Tools: copics for coloring, cuttlebug embossing folder, nestabilities die, vines die (whimsy stamps), word window punch (SU), distress ink, ink applicator
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your upcoming week! Oh, and don't forget to check out my current word play saturday challenge, where the theme is "weather". There are only about 5 days to enter for a chance to win a cute stamp.
