Make a Wish!

My Favorite Things always has the neatest stamps in their collection!

For this card I used the
"You Take the Cake" set which I have had for-evah! but I just haven't inked it up yet--silly me!!

My inspiration for this card is from Kendra Giles because ya know----- I cannot find my imagination every day - sometimes any day!! LOL!

I used this beautiful SEI paper again called Dill Blossoms, I just can't get enough of it....and I only have 6 sheets of it!! cut in half!! but I love it so much I can't stop using it!!

I mounted the Dill Blossoms paper on Very Vanilla and tied my aquamist satin ribbon around it.

I added a little bit of sheer chocolate swiss dot ribbon to the tie just for a wee bit o' interest!

I mounted that onto Bazzill (bazill?) cardstock.

I stamped the table first, then the cake, and then the candles onto Very Vanilla cardstock and coloured it with my copics. I also used my turquoise Sakura glitter pen for some of the flowers and then highlighted the rest of the flowers with the Copic glitter pen.

The copic glitter pen seems to leave the true colour when you use it. For me, The Sakura makes it kind of grey......just me maybe!!

I mounted that on the Bazill cardstock and back onto Very Vanilla. I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla and glued it to the side of the picture - just like my hero stamper, Kendra!

Then I popped it up on the patterned paper and ........

it looked barenaked!

So I doodled around the edges (just like you-know-who!) and then it was finished!!

Holly's worker took her to math class yesterday, and hubby was fishing, so I got to stamp away the day! YAY!
