Birthday Challenge

There is a mini-weekend challenge going on now at Paper Patch Crafts.  The theme is a fun, bright and cheerful birthday card that contained either one balloon, cupcake, hat, or piece of cake.  I dug through some old stamps I had and disovered the fun cupcake set I bought many years ago from Stampin'Up. I outlined the stamped images with my Copic Multiliner to make the image pop a little bit more.  The kitty stamp is even older and I can't recall the company I bought it from.

The embossing folder for the background is Tiny Mosaics, I used Stampin' Up inks for the cupcake and colored my kitty with copics markers.  Some random sparkle was added with stickles.  The tag was stamped in ink, gone over with a gluepen and then loaded up with tiny micro beads to add some texture and extra wow to the project. In reality the micro-beaded text looks more sharp and detailed than it actually photographed.  My son's birthday is this coming Wednesday so I think I will give this card to him...otherwise I may have added a ribbon or bow to make it a little sweeter...but 24 year old men don't usually appreciate that little extra touch. :)

Happy Birthday Brandon!
