Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hello there,

Happy Saturday - I hope you've had a sweet week!

I'm back today with a new challenge from Sweet Stampin and this week I found the challenge quite....well....challenging! Our theme this week is "embossing"....and as some of you know I'm really not a fan! I'm not keen on dry or wet embossing...no particular reason...I just don't like it!

However, I'm a big girl....so when I saw the theme I took a deep breath and looked through my craft stash for some inspiration. To make it a bit easier I opted for a Birthday card and to sweeten it a little more I thought I should feature some cake.....


I've gone with a bright zingy colour combo, using the strong green plain paper with striped and starred patterned papers. My dry embossing was created using my Cuttlebug - I embossed the present and then used a light grey Promarker to add a little more definition.

Finally I added a stamped cake image, which has been coloured with my Promarkers and I've added a little sparkle with my Stickles.

For more embossing inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at all the gorgeous DT cards that Team Abi have created. While you are there you can read all about our fab sponsor this week...
