Birthday Whimsy


Another Nancy Hill inspired item. Nancy got this card (with different colors) in a swap she did at stamp mania. I loved it so I had to case it. I wanted to make several of them to use when I need a quick birthday card, but would you believe with all the paper I brought with me to LA I only had 1/2 of a sheet of rose red? Yeah, me neither. I use that color all the time. Sure enough when I got home I found my pack of rose red just sitting there. The frosting on the cake is a SU scallop punch that I cut to fit the top of the cake. Then I rubbed the frosting with versamark and covered it with iridescent ice. You can't see it very good in the picture but in real life it is shiny. Also the blue stripe is crimped. I don't think you can see that very well either in the picture.
