Let's Party...

Sassy Studio provided "Birthday Cake Sassy"
The newest challenge at   613 Ave C is 
There are two sponsors [Sassy Studio & Oak Pond Creations] and two prizes available over the 2 week period from Sunday 7/20 to 8/2.  Check out what my talented housemates have created and the rest of the details for the challenge at 613 Ave C.
I love doing redheads with my Copics... so I picked DP & CS that would support my gal!  The edges on those layers have been distressed  & the ribbon "ties" them together.  The DP has numbers on it if you look closely... and that is perfect for a birthday.  I made the image quite large and then punched her out with a scalloped punch so I could easily showcase her head and the cake. Sassy's head is sculpted & elevated for a 2nd layer as are the letters for the sentiment.  Gold foil was added to her earring and every other pearl around the layers of cake - this was done with duo glue and gold foil. Sources can be found below.

  5. I love images of wonky cakes. It must be my sweet tooth that is attracted to them. If they are wonky, that must mean they have more icing than cake right? lol Great card!

  6. Love how you explained the details of your card! Lovely! Thank you for joining us at ABC CHALLENGE! Good luck and I hope we see more of your lovely work in our future challenges!

  7. Hi there, Ginny! I struggling with time for the past few weeks now since we are still unpacking for our recent move but saw your wonderful comment on my card and love the detailed comment. You are wonderful in writing comments and I know that you know that is a gift! Anyway, your card is so beautiful as well...I love how you selectively highlighted just a part of the image to focus on your theme. Also like that you used bright colors on this creation. Looking fantastic, my friend! Big hugs your way!
