Birthday Cheer

I found inspiration this time around in the Viva La Verve October Week 5 sketch (who wouldn't?! It's fabulous!) I had to make a card for my mother in law's birthday so I knew I could make it a big, fun 5.5" x 5.5" card. I just love the patterned papers in this set (I think it was called Berry Bliss) and have managed to not use them all yet despite my best efforts at reducing my patterned paper.

I have a huge stash of Purely Pomegranate paper, plus I had purchased two rolls of this satin ribbon, so I'm still going strong with it (plus, I find I'm a little stingy) The cake from Big Wish was stamped in Versamark and embossed with Irridescent Ice, then just a few touches of color were added. Makes it a bit difficult to see much other than the flower and candles, though unless you look *really* hard.
This is promising to be a fun filled, but (as usual) busy week. I'm looking forward to flying out to Chicago on Friday, though, for our Ultimate Fan Trip. I'm hoping the Oilers can make a good showing at "The Madhouse on Madison" and then aiming to see the Packers continue their current win streak.

In the meantime, though, The Sisterhood of Crafters has a challenge coming up on Wednesday that I'm happy to be participating in, so be sure to pop by ;)

Have a great day!
