Today's challenge #51 from Pattie's Creations is Birthdays. And how appropriate since two of us on this design team are celebrating their birthdays today (Charlene and me).
Happy Birthday Charlene!
I've used Allie With Cupcake and printed the image twice, for both birthday celebrants. (I have an older version that didn't include the stool.) I fussy cut out the second cat and pop dotted it next to the first cat for added dimension. The Cuttlebug embossing folder was a wonderful surprise from Tammy (thanks!) and was perfect for today's theme. The images are colored with Copics and Spica glitter pens for added sparkle. The candy dots on the cupcakes were given extra dimension using Liquid Pearls (white opal). My background was done in chalk and some Washi tape, buttons, and twine were a final touch.
So when you visit the challenge blog to see what the design team has created for you, be sure to wish Charlene a very happy birthday too. You have two weeks to upload your birthday card and you can use either a digi image or a rubber stamp as long as you follow the theme. Don't forget to check out the rest of Pattie's wonderful images at her Esty store. I'm sure there will be something there that strikes your fancy.
