Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #8

This week at Celebrate the Occasion the challenge is to make a project with the theme anything birthday (must have a flower). For my card, I used some of the Stella Rose collection from My Mind's Eye - I just can't seem to get away from their stuff, they really do have the most beautiful paper! I cut out the birthday cake pieces and then used the corner rounder to make it look more like a cake. I used a fun EK Success border punch to cut out the side bar too!

I sprayed my prima flowers with electric blue and silver sugar glimmer mist and then added a pearl accent to the middle of each flower.

Then I embossed the candle and used stickles to add some shine to the flame.

Make sure you join us this week at Celebrate the Occasion for this fun challenge! All you need to do is create a card, layout or project and post it by Sunday, April 10th, 11:59pm (EST). The winner will be selected and entered into their monthly drawing and they will be giving away a "SIMPLY SWEET" cricut cartridge for the month of April!!!
