Celebrate Your Birthday (Card)

At my recent card class, we played around with color theory, including mixing and matching our paper packs.  This card uses both the Balloon Ride and Ariana paper packs.
We had lots of fun playing with the CTMH/Cricut Art Philosphy cartridge and the stamp sets that come with the cartridge.  To make our yummy cupcake, I cut it out twice: once on White Daisy card stock and once on the Ariana green paper.  Then we also stamped it twice: in Outdoor Denim on the green and Smoothie on the white.  After you cut off the white frosting, adhere it to the green cupcake.  Scrumdillyicious!
While my card was based on a Make It From Heart Heart sketch, it is a great match for the current Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge #61 so I have to link up.  Thanks for celebrating with me!

  3. What a fantastic birthday card, and the combination of colours and papers works so well together. Thanks for the ideas on how to stamp and cut the cupcake too. Thanks so much for joining us at AHSC this week.

  4. Great job using papers from more than one pack. That is the lovely thing about paper from CTMH, you usually can interchange papers. Sweet card. Thanks for joining us at AHSC!

  5. I love that you mixed different paper packs, that is something I struggle with personally....I love it. I adore the little bow, the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for playing along at AHSC!

  6. This card is well thought out, great choice of paper mixes, and colour pallet. Thanks for playing along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
