Two Birthdays in Two Days




Good Thursday mornin' to you! I will hafta make this quick cuz I need to get some yard work done before we start getting the 7 days of rain that has been forecasted for my area. I wanted to post the card I made for my niece's 2nd birthday yesterday. I celebrated with my sister and her family last night. What fun! My sister is very creative and while I have recently gotten her started with card making she has been a cake decorator for about 8 years!! Doesn't she do super work? Her and my youngest daughter, Annalee, have recently started their own business and online site. It's called ArtistiCakes-check them out! And today is my oldest son's 25th birthday!! I can't believe that I have a child who is a 1/4 of a century old, yikes!
So, getting to the card I made-this was a Sketch Challenge at SCS. Check it out HERE. Yup!! I used my Sock Monkey set again!! I jsut can't help myself! The decorative cs is from DCWV Nursery mat stack. The party hat was stamped on both dp's and then paper pieced. I also paper pieced the cupcake. The ballons were stamped on the dp's also and then cut out. The ballon strings were drawn on with my SU journaler. The image was stamped on Very Vanilla cs and colored in using my SU inkpad lids and blender pens. The 2 triangles are Marvy square punches that were cut in half. Cupcake frosting is colored in using Cotton Candy Stickles-YUMMY!
here are the nitty gritties:
STAMPS: SU Sock Monkey, Wow Flowers for the sentiment
PAPER: SU Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, DCWV Nursery mat stack
INK: SU Pink Piroette, Creamy Caramel, Real Red, Basic black
ACCESSORIES: Marvy scallop square punches, Stickles, blender pens, SU dimensionals, detail scissors for paper piecing
I really was planning on adding ribbon to this when I started, but then I didn't know where to put it, so I left it off!! My neice loved it!!
