Crazy for Birthday Cards


A couple of birthday cards to show you today, made with the Crazy for Cupcakes set :) ! This first one goes out to a very special birthday girl...Becca Feeken (Amazing Paper Grace)! She recently joined the ODBD design team and she is such a sweetheart, not to mention a bundle of creativity, talent & inspiration. Happy Birthday Becca, hope you have a super-duper day :) !! The card was colored with Copics (R43, R46, C1 & C3) and yes, those cupcakes were topped off with Crystal Effects and Chunky Sprinkles!!! You can see that shine and sparkle up close right here ~ This card was made with the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge Sketch #36. It turned out, ummm, well...different than I expected (that's my nice way of saying I think there's something wrong with the card, can't decide what, it's a bit irritating, but I've spent enough time on it...so it's done!). While the jury's still out about the card, the sketch IS really fun and I'm grateful to Taylor for posting these each week. Sketches are a fun way to experiment and try new layouts that maybe you haven't tried before. This was a first for me. I used more of my favorite new Haiku DP and the sentiment is from a level-1 hostess set called Best Yet. More Crystal Effects and Chunky Sprinkles give those balloons some great dimension, shine & sparkle!
That'll do it for today : ) ... thanks for stopping by & you have yourself an awesome day!!!

Both cards "sparkle." Love what you did with the line of balloons (genius) and the chunky glitter was a perfect choice. Hugs, Mary
