My Last 20's Post

It just feels so weird to NEVER be able to say I'm in my twenties EVER AGAIN!!! I'm not sure how I feel about this, but life goes on, so I hear! Thanks for all your kind comments on my last few posts, you still have a chance to enter to win blog candy HERE! It's my birthday, but you get the present.

I made this card for someone who shares my birthday. I think it turned out really cute, I hope she likes it. The card base is pomegranate, with an olive layer and Distressed Dots dsp from Colorbok. The scallop and circles are cut out with nestabilities, and I stamped the cupcake in palette noir, pieced the "cup", and watercolored the frosting. I stamped the words on the top and the bottom. Now the cool thing about these words is that it is a straight line acrylic stamp. So how, you may ask, did I get them to curve so wonderfully? Well, I recently purchased a clear acrylic block that not only has gridlines, but wavy lines and a half circle etched on it! Very cool! I did have to play with it just a bit as the etched circle on the block wasn't quite the shape here. I punched a 1/2" circle out of pomegranate and sugar dusted it using a beadable embossing sheet. The "cherry" is popped up on a dimensional.

Thanks for stopping by, have a terrific weekend!
