Patterned Party Cake...


We're back with the first Dynamic Duos colour challenge of 2013 and its a bright and cheerful one this week...

I thought these colours would be great for a bright and colourful birthday card, so I pulled out my Patterned Party stamp set and got started...

The birthday banner was stamped with Island Indigo, then again with Melon Mambo - I cut out the 'birthday' flags from the Melon one and layered them on the Indigo image using Tombow glue. I added a piece of Melon Mambo card stamped with the argyle pattern from the same stamp set and tied some white organza ribbon around in a bow. The cake was stamped with Melon Mambo and I added some Dazzling Details to some parts for a bit of sparkle. The candle was inked with markers and stamped three times on top of the cake. I die-cut the cake panel using a labels framelit and added some piercing around the edge. The dsp in the background is from Twitterpated and sponged with Island Indigo ink.

I used this week's Case Study challenge as a starting point (although mine looks nothing like the original!!)...

I used her layout (sort of!) and I used my banner image to replace the swirls and also used some white satin ribbon in a bow like Windy.

The rest of the design team have some fabulous creations to inspire you this week - make sure you pop by Dynamic Duos check them out!

Thanks for stopping by...
