A friend of mine is running this fantastic challenge blog called Party Time Tuesdays. Each week there is a new challenge, but the catch is it has to be a birthday card! How fun, right?? I am slipping in for their last challenge before break...they are taking the rest of September off. This week's challenge was to use brads. You are also supposed to include some sort of sentiment that makes it obvious that it's a birthday card. I think we've all learned the lesson that I am a rotten stamper, so I used birthday paper that says, "Happy Birthday" all over it. Hope that counts.
The paper is all scraps from my stash as are the brads. The yummy cuppy-cake was freehanded. I just cut out a.......hmm maybe I should have been paying attention to geometry in HS and not the boys ;)......shape?? and ran it through my Fiskars crimper. Then I freehanded a muffin top shape and inked the edges to make it look toasty and added it to the top. It's all popped up with dimmentionals. I cut a little cherry out of red sugardust paper and the stem is a piece of green wire taped on the back. I actually made three of these. One for a swap and two to keep should I need a birthday card :) The sketch I followed is this week's OCC Sketch :)
