Papertrey Ink Just Deserts birthday card

Hello and welcome! 

I am thrilled and honoured to be joining the talented Design Team over at Addicted to Stamps and More, and to ease me into things I am delighted that we have the ever popular Anything Goes theme.

I decided to make a bold and bright birthday card for my bloggy friend Darnell, who celebrated her birthday a few days ago, and I came up with this one.

I used the Papertrey Ink Just Deserts Stamp and Die Sets (NBUS just for you Darnell) to make the cake. I topped the cake with some delicious fruit and added WOS glitter brush to the frosting before adding some birthday candles. The cake stand was cut on my Silhouette Cameo, and the finished cake was raised on a stitched square panel.

I made the background panels using the MFT Blueprints 23 set, and embossed the sentiment in white. All that was left to do was layer up the panels and add a few berries to finish it off.

The is a prize too and the Sponsor is

Happy Little Stampers was created in 2015 by Kylie (owner of ATSM and ATCAS). Kylie wanted to bring out a line of stamps that were useful for every day crafters. From cute to whimsical images, from everyday to funky sentiments there is something for everyone!

Prize: $15 gift certificate

Why not hop over to the ATSM blog to see some more inspiration. I can't wait to see your entries.

I'd like to play along for the first time at
