Have Your Cake and Eat It Too!!!
First off, I'm so happy to see so many followers! I really appreciate everyone's interest in my blog and I hope to continue creating for you to enjoy. Hopefully, I'll inspire some of you to make your own creations to share. I love all of your comments and appreciate the feedback - without it, I wouldn't continue to post my work.
I need a birthday card for my mom and thought I would try out this digi stamp I got free at Sliekje digi Stamps. She's an amazing artist and shares all of her work for free. If you decide to use any of her images please leave her a little blog love as it's truly amazing that she shares all of her images. I used my G for this project (of course, I love that thing - anyone thinking about getting one, but not so sure they'll like it - trust me YOU'LL LOVE IT). I only used Wild Card cart for this project. I used all frames - Welded the two ovals together for the card. I also used a few other oval images from the frame section - including a frame that I put around my mouse image. I really wanted the frame to pop and not the frame and mouse, but because I printed this out on my printer - I couldn't really get my cricut to cut the mouse out too...really need nesties for this, right? I've never used them, but I here other creative ladies talk about them a lot. Anyhow, I colored the mouse using the prizma/baby oil technique. I then used my Zig pen and some fine glitter to shimmer up the cake. I cut out little strawberries from the strawberry paper and added some to the image too. Finally, I took the yellow Stickles to the candle flames and added a few blingy rhinestones. Not too sure if this passes for my mom's birthday (of course I want a card for her to be perfect - lol), but if not, it will go in my stash!
I'm also submitting this to Cute Card Thursday for a challenge.
