It's new challenge day at
Moving Along with the Times challenge blog
and our host this week is the lovely Claire
who just happens to have a birthday very soon
So she chose the theme
(happy birthday Claire xx)
For some reason this challenge gave me more trouble than I've had in a long while to make a card - I just couln't please myself! - infact this is my second attempt, I looked at the first one again after leaving it overnight (a tried and tested method!) - and hated it so it ended up in the bin!
Considering it's such a simple theme I have no idea why i couldn't put it together!!
Anyway here's my card - still not the most favourite card I ever made - but I can live with it lol
The cupcake and sentiment are from Crafters companion - coloured with spectrum noir sparkle pens
The whole card base is a die set from Sizzix and I used various scraps of card to put it together using circle dies, a heart and label die to embellish - at least the cake looks yummy!
Hope you can come up with a birthday cake card with far less bother than I had!
