Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 104
SSSC104 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.
And birthday week continues here in the Giron house/world. Yesterday was my son's party and today it is my sweet nephew's 8th birthday! This little number is for my nephew. I made this super easy card with Taylored Expressions Make a Wish and combined it with patterned papers from Report Card and Fly a Kite by October Afternoon. I didn't even use Copics! The sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and again in Warm Red Fluid Chalk Ink where I cut out the candle/star 'i'. The balloons are stamped in Blue Lagoon and Pumpkin Spice and cut out with the coordinating Make a Wish Balloons Die. I cut out the banner and popped it up across the card with foam tape and then I added a few red rhinestones.
My husband, who is the brilliant chef, baker, and all-around awesome man of the house made Andrew an adorable dino cake and it was just too cute not to share a photo with you. Now, we can't take the credit for this one, but we found this cake online and copied it.
