A LA Card Monkey! 96
It is sketch number 96 over at A la card monkey and there is a hint of excitement as they approach sketch 100! Look for blog candy and more coming soon.
Here is the sketch we had to work with this week and the theme is moments. I love birthday moments so I chose to make a birthday card.
I chose tempting turquoise for my base and embossed it with a cuttle bug embossing folder. Next I used a piece of Sweet Shoppe DSP and ran some real red through the big shot with the Tasteful Trims big shot die from Stampin up!. I used the Big Cupcakes die for my Cupcake image. The icing is Whisper White cardstock that I smooched some Frost White Shimmer Paint. The next step was to use my stampin pastels and a sponge to add some pretty in pink to the icing. This techniques leaves a swirly icing texture and some shine.
The sprinkles were cut out with silver glitter paper and then I used three different reinkers to colour them.
I made a banner from whisper white and stamped my birthday greeting from swirls and curls verses. And added some Jelly Bean brads.
I had a slight paper injury when I was making this card and got some blood on the top of my card (ouch) so I added some of the organza ribbon that you can receive free during Sale-a-bration with a purchase of $60. You also receive some buttons and some Lucky Limeaide organza in the set!
