mmm Baking a Treat - -

Hi! I actually got to craft last night! My hand is feeling better, I just have numbness from time to time, and last night wasn't too bad so Yea I got to color! I am not a happy camper if I can't color! :0)

I needed a simple Happy Birthday card, and this one really came together very quick... And it has chocolate in the the bowl so yummy!
This is Stampavie's Gillian Roberts "Baking a Treat".... I just love it! How adorable are these two bakers? I have colored with my Copics, and then added just a bit of Spica Glitter pen to the Chocolate in the bowl, and some white gel pen high lights. Then cut out with a Nesties Label and used a Copic to create a Mat look.


Now seriously, this card came together so fast. I needed it to be flat - (easier to mail) - I layered the yellow card stock base with a dusty pink and white card stock - then used one piece of K&Company Cut and Paste collection paper, I love the scattered layer look of this pattern paper - and again you don't need a lot when using it as it already looks like lots of different papers. And this one was perfect for a Birthday card as it has old recipes for Cakes on it! I sewed it with the mats. Then I cut out Happy Birthday from the pink card stock with a Sizzix Car Makers die, the cupcake is a part of that die... wasn't going to use it in the beginning and then I realized that the top corner was empty looking, and well... the cupcake fit perfectly. I colored the die cut with Copics and then Spica Glitter pens.

Again this was a fast one, but I so love how it came out - great image with the perfect paper helps a whole bunch!

Have a wonderful day - And don't forget my Candy I have going now.. link to the left :0)
