So Many Candles, So Little Cake







August is a HUGE birthday month for me!  Not only is it my own, but I must have a list of 20 or so relatives and friends who were also born during this warm Summer month!  As well as what seems like half the Sassy Studio Designs design team! lol  While prepping for this challenge we realized just how many of us were August babies, including our fabulous artist/owner Lindsay!  

To celebrate, we are having a birthday themed freebie and challenge over at Sassy Studio Designs' Paper Craft Planet group this fortnight!  Today's image is called Birthday Surprise.  Isn't she tons of fun with that yummy looking cake?  The challenge is an easy one - create a birthday themed project.  Since I need lots of cards this month, this was an easy and useful project for me!  I selected the current sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (#157) as my layout.  It was fairly simple so I dressed it up a bit with some flowers and pearls plus a new metal corner that I snagged at Michaels recently.  My image is colored with Copics.  Here are a couple of close-ups of the details:






We have a brand new crew on FFF duty starting today so please head over to PCP to say hello and see what gorgeous cards they have designed for this challenge!  And remember to grab the freebie while you're there!  She's available for 24 hours starting at 8am EDT.  

And speaking of birthdays, I hope you'll check out my birthday blog candy, found here.  I am off to start my day.  Work, a few errands, baking, and crafting await me!  Enjoy your day and I hope it's a brilliant start to your weekend!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E31, E33, E23, E25, E27, E04, R20, R81, V09, V12, Y32, YR07, YR15, BG10, BG13, BG15).

Gorgeous card Regan! My cake would be worse if they put all my candles on a cake. I think it would set off the sprinklers. I love the numbers all over the paper. Too cute. Hugs, Robin
