Happy Birthday for As You See It Challenges

Hey, there!  Yes, you!  Happy Birthday!  It's not your birthday today?  Well, it will be sometime this year, right?  So this is for you.  Apply it sometime in the next 12 months!

It's Friday and time for another As You See It Challenge, this time a theme - Birthdays!  And it's a birthday theme, because it is our One Year Anniversary at As You See It Challenges! Woot!  In honour of that, I have heard a rumour that there might be some blog candy available for this challenge.  Pop on over and find out!

I have wanted to use the Seize the Cake sentiment forever and it never seemed to work out, so I was determined that I would ink it up for this challenge.  Then I set out to find a cake image!  Here's the results:

  • My inspiration, the Seize the Cake sentiment, as well as the Happy Birthday are from the Something to Say stamp set.  I finally found the cake I wanted from Life's Adventure, a Hostess set.  That means it is only available as Hostess rewards, so to get it, you either need to host a party or join my Stamp Club, both of which I have openings for. Email me.
  • My colour choices were made because of another challenge, Colour Throwdown #308:

  • I put another couple of stamp sets to work as well with this design.  You will all recognize Gorgeous Grunge in the background, giving the card that celebratory look, and also Everything Eleanor for the backing for the cake.  Both the cake and the background label were fussy cut with Paper Snips!
A fairly simple card concept, but lots of fun to create.  Maybe you can use it to wish someone else a happy birthday!  And head over to As You See It Challenges and enter this week challenge for a chance at some blog candy!
