Happy Birthday with Rosie-Blogger's Challenge


Blogger's Challenge Friday with one of my favorite themes- a sketch challenge.  Although I would love to say this card came easy for me, I was doing it in bits and pieces and kept on changing some things.










I colored this image from Lili of the Valley months ago and had it sitting on my stack of things to put together.  I loved the colors and they worked perfectly with the new Play Date Cafe Challenge this week.  I had to alter one of my colors to make it a little bit darker on my image but think it turned out great.  I wanted to use some of the new lattice rectangles  that I recently added to my spellbinders collection, they worked out great for the 2 rectangles in the sketch.


I ran my creamsicle cardigan paper through the cuttle bug with the Swiss dots folder to give it some more dimension against the lattice rectangles.  I decided to put some Lilac twine from The Twinery on the rectangles, some stickles on the stars and the candle.  At the last minute I added some 3D Crystal Lacquer onto the cake icing.

The two opposite sides looked a little bare so I included a sentiment and on the side opposite put some orange creative candy.
