All About the Animals

That's the theme this week over on the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog, and it's another great challenge. Phindy has an ample supply of delightful animal images in her STORE. Please be sure to go check them out. I can promise you, you will find something you just HAVE TO HAVE!!!!

The image I've used for my challenge card is called "It's All Yours". I'm constantly needing birthday cards and this seemed like the perfect image for a birthday card for me. You know it's all about the cake. I've colored my image with Copics.

As you've probably guessed. the papers are digitals that I printed. They're from the Happy Birthday Kit from Digital Divas Designs. Oh and it was a free kit too. Aren't they fabulous? The best part for me is that everything coordinates without me having to do a lot of searching. It's everything you need for a birthday party.

I took some scrap paper from my scrap box(paper is from Summer Drigg's Sweet Cakes kit) to create my cupcake for my sentiment base. The sentiment is from Create with TLC, and I recolored it. I added the glass bead "sprinkles" for just a little more dimension, and that was the hard part. The beads came in &%#)$ plastic packaging, and in 6 different little pouches. There was no way to open it so that beads didn't end up either end up getting mixed together or flying out of the package. You'll be happy to know that each color is now in it's own little ziploc.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day. The sun is finally shining here at many days of gloom.
