Triple Happy Birthday Background with Cake

Hi Bloggers.

Well we had a fab day yesterday with Leonie. I've put some pics at the end of this post.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I dabbed some Sweet Violet CS Chalk Cloud onto my Craft Sheet. I misted it with a little water and picked it up onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I used die #2 from Sue Wilson's Stitched Square Peg Board to cut a square from my background.

I cut the Triple Happy Birthday Die from a piece of Black Card - I used the fall away pieces on another project (tomorrow's post) and used the waste as a mask. I inked through it several times all over my card with Princess Pink CS Chalk Cloud using a Smoothie.

I matted onto a piece of Coconut White Card using die #3 from the Stitched Square Peg Board Die Set. I cut die #4 from the set, again out of Coconut White Card but this time I edged with Princess Pink Chalk Cloud.

I cut Sue's Make a Cake Die Set out of Coconut White Card, Silver Mirror Card and more of my background. I coloured the candles using Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers.

I cut the Alphabet Grid die out of Baby Pink and Coconut White Card.

I cut a couple of penants out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Celebrations Shadow Box Die Set. I wrapped them around a piece of Pastel Baker's Twine and added my numbers from the Alphabet Grid.

Thanks for stopping by.
