Birthday Wish

I have birthdays on the brain right now. I have several friends and family members with birthdays this time of year. In fact, today is my grandmother's birthday. I am so grateful that she (and my grandpa) are a part of our lives. My children spend the morning with them until they go to school... their great-grandparents. How wonderful, don't you think? With grandma's health issues in the recent past (doctors found a brain aneurysm that was treatable with non-invasive surgery = miracle), I'm glad we're celebrating. It makes my heart light to think about it.

So, I have a fun birthday card to share with you.

The card base is Bashful blue, with all the designer papers by Cosmo Cricket (Storytime). I used a new set by Kitchen Sink Stamps called Happy Birthday Cupcake, which will be released on December 3rd. It's a very versatile set, perfect for quick cards, paper piecing, you name it. I stamped the circle in Certainly Celery on shimmery white cardstock. The central cupcake is stamped in black and colored with copic markers. I added a bit of glimmer to the icing and candle with Copic Spica glitter pens. It's cut out (a small scallop edge) and popped up with dimensional tape. I used the corner ticket punch to give the striped panel a bit of the circular design and inked edges. I added the little sentiment in black - because who doesn't want their birthday wish to come true? The ribbon completed the fun... really simple.

I will be making more cards with this set, so check back soon!

Thanks for stopping by,

Lisa
