Happy Birthday!

Good morning!  It's Tuesday so that means we have a new sketch for you over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our sponsor for the week is Bugaboo...I always love it when they sponsor...had a great time looking for an image to suit the sketch.  Thank you to Bugaboo for this cute cupcake border!

The cuppies are colored with pencils and the cherries have a bit of glitter on them.  I used Doodlebug sugar coated CS for the banner and oval, and embellished it simply with a candle, twine, and tag.  If you look closely, you will see 2 tiny brown brads at the top of the banner.

Image: Bugaboo Digital Stamp, Totally Stampalicious Sentiment
Ink: Printer, SU! Close to Cocoa Marker
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, G.P. 110, Doodlebug Sugar Coated CS in "Lily White" and "Bon Bon", Bella Blvd. DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Glitter in "Cherry Popsicle", Spare Parts Brads, PTI Dark Chocolate Baker's Twine, Cake Mate Candle
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's fun cards using this sketch.  Play along for a chance to win the prize from Bugaboo!

This is such a fun card, definitely in the spirit of a HAPPY birthday! Love the idea of the candle as an element and the brads you used for the banner worked beautifully with the paper. BRIGHT and vibrant and perfect for our Opus Gluei theme, thank you for sharing your heartwarming (no pun intended but LOL) creation!
