Cup Cake Party at Penny's

It's time for a new challenge with us on the

As always, the challenge is Anything Goes.


The sponsors for this challenge are:

All Dressed Up

Di's Digi Stamps


Today I have used the Cup Cake digital stamp from All Dressed Up, one of our generous sponsors for this challenge, to make a birthday card.

It's a Cup Cake Party at Penny's and I have to apologise for being late,
my RA decided that I wasn't allowed to play until today.

The is so much cuteness and detail in this Cup Cake scene that I decided to keep it CAS, so I sized the image to fit on A5 X-Press It blending card, heat set and coloured with Copic markers.  I coloured the matting panel with a Copic marker to match the image panel and trimmed it to 1/8" with a Perfect Layers Ruler.  The background patterned paper is a combination of two digital papers.  I scored an A5 cardstock panel and adhered to another to make a top folding card base.

My body wasn't very co-operative when making my card, the final image was my 3rd attempt, below, is the 2nd version, sadly I had a couple of oops when it was almost done,
one day I might be able to salvage it ... 


NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
