This post is about the birthday card I made for 3 different challenges:
1) Celebrate the Occasion: #52 Birthday Bling Challenge -- In order to help build up your birthday card stash the challenge this week was to create a birthday card and you must use bling.
2) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog: #100 Color Challenge -- This challenge is all about color specifically the colors that make up the FCCB blog (purple, turquoise, and green).
3) Cardz TV: #103 You Take The Cake Challenge -- This challenge is for a birthday card with a cake or cupcake.
Okay now that that is out of the way on to my card. I used a cartridge I just received, Sweet Treats. I chose the cake on page 40 as my main image.
Since I cut a bigger cake I decided to use a square card base (5.5 x 5.5"). I orginally hadn't cut a shadow but decided it needed something to help make the cake stand out. The cake was cut at 5" and the shadow at 4.8". I didn't want the shadow to be as large as it would have been if I would have cut it at 5". I embossed the blue layer with the D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder. The jewels I used are actually light purple so they matched the purple cardstock. I used Studio G glitter glue in yellow to decorate the flame and Glossy Accents over the Happy Birthday cut. I also added the green brads that I got from Hobby Lobby.
Here's a close up of the words and the jewels. This is a bright, fun card. I really loved how it turned out.
