Happy Birthday To You!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try, SFYTT!!!

For my card, I used the SUPER sweet new Make A Wish set from Taylored Expressions and stamped the cake and cake plate in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and added some glitter to the stars and the "fudge" topping on the cake.

The sentiment, "Happy Birthday To You" is also from Make A Wish, and I simply stamped each word separately so that I could make it fit in the circle. I cut out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities and layered it onto cardstock cut from Scallop Circle Nestabilities.

I embossed the orange panel with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and all the cardstock and patterned paper on my card are from the Make A Wish Project Pantry Kit, also from Taylored Expressions. I used the brand new Make A Wish Balloon Dies from Taylored Expressions and cut them out with some felt from my stash for a fun accent. I added some bling with Taylor's Tiny Twinkles and I attached them with the AMAZING Embellie Gellie (this stuff ROCKS my world!).
