It is all about the Birthday

Happy Wednesday everyone!! I hope you are all doing well.

Popping in with some birthday cards that I created. My first one is a color combination I have not really used before. I wanted to make a birthday cake with chocolate frosting-which is MY FAVORITE. My husband makes the best home made chocolate cake and chocolate frosting combination. I ask for it for all my birthdays!!

I used Reverse Confetti's Cake and Champagne Stamp and Die set for the cake and champagne, and Lawn Fawn's Coles Alphabet Die for my sentiment.

I decided that gold was the perfect color to accent the chocolate with so I created the sentiment using gold cardstock and made the cake stand gold.

I colored in everything using Copic markers and added some sparkle and shine on some of the elements with a Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen.

This card was inspired by some challenges. Addicted to CAS #178: Codeword CAKE and Less is More #413: More.

My second card was inspired by Seize the Birthday's Challenge #183: Show Me Some White Space.

My jumping off point for this card was the cake element which I had in my stash. The pink, purply blue and aqua were inspired by the colors from the logo.

I used scraps of pattern paper for my candles.

I used CAS-ual Fridays Fun-Fetti Fri-dies for the hearts that are the "flame" on the candles. I added some Stickles to the flames too.

The circle was popped up with foam adhesive.

I was so happy to make these cards as I have had no creative inkling to do anything at all lately.

On another note, this past weekend I celebrated my birthday with my daughter and my husband in Washington DC.  My daughter goes to college down there and I wanted to see her. We went to downtown Alexandria on Saturday and walked around. The day was so beautiful!! We went into an old torpedo factory that has been renovated for artist studios. They displayed their wares for sale and I was able to talk to a few of them about their art and it was so interesting. I love to hear how people are inspired by things.

Well, that is all form me tonight. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a fabulous night!!
