WMSC59

I am finally home from vacation.  Sixteen days without making a card.  I can't believe I made it and have to admit I did a ton of daydreaming while I was gone.  The first thing I wanted to do when I stormed my craftroom today was make a card for WaltzingMouse Sketch Challenge #59.  Here is the really great sketch by Mischief Maker Kelly Schirmer:
Isn't it a great sketch? 



Right away I got out my WaltzingMouse Eat Cake stamp set.  This set has two sizes of cakes and accessories that are perfect for either weddings or birthdays.  Today's card is for a birthday.  I used some My Minds Eye (Lime Twist) patterned paper and some dark chocolate cardstock.  I stamped the really pretty swag border from Eat Cake and trimmed it out.  The cake is stamped with Versamark onto Simply Chartreuse cardstock and some pure poppy flowers and glitter bling it up a bit.  The Birthday Wishes sentiment is embossed with Fresh Snow ink and of course there had to be at least one birthday candle on my cake.  I used a star rhinestone for the flame and a few little rhinestones on the swag for some sparkle.  Sketch challenges are my favorite type of challenge, and this one was so much fun as I get back into the swing of cardmaking.  Thanks for taking a look.  Make sure to check out the Eat Cake stamp set by WaltzingMouse.  It is really a good one!

Gawjus! What a wonderful return card! Your crafty hands and eye have lost no condition I see. Just marvellous! I adore that swag drape that has been so perfectly blinged out. I didn't order this set, but boy do I wish I had. On my list it now goes. I love how you executed the WMSC sketch. You have done Kelly proud. Just perfect!

Ohhh so worth the 16 day wait, Cathy! I just love how you used the scalloped image from the set...looks like it was printed right along with that delicious patterned paper! Excellent "fussy" cutting. Your cake is awesome in those colors, and I just love all of the little gems!

I love this Cathy. Not only does your cake look delicious, but your bunting trim turned out perfectly. Awesome. Thanks so much for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge.

Great card! Love the patterned papers that you chose. And the border image is lovely. But I think that little candle topped with the star bling is just the best!

Super card! Great papers and stamp set!

I love the little scallop borders that you cut out from the images, looks fab and really breaks up the space...thanks so much for playing along with the Mischief Makers this week!
