Down to the wire on this one! Second post of the day (because I was not sure I would create the card!).
The stripes have been in my brain for a week. “I need to do stripes.” I tried to make a background of closely spaced sentiments in the stripe colors…that worked until my Summer Starfruit marker didn’t work on the clear stamp I was trying to use. Circular file fodder. I thought about doing stripy clusters of flowers…nah.
Cake layers…yes…yes…I can do that! I watercolored a background with Distress Inks. The cake was embossed and then colored with a blender pen – but I didn’t blend the colors well, I wanted edges on the colors. A bit Wink of Stella on the top of the cake. The candles were embossed, then colored with Copics. (and I trimmed them more so that the white edge of the die cut would not block the top of the cake)
Here is the inspiration (by Emilio de la Morena):
