Happy Cake

Challenge #68 from Pattie's Creations is to use red, white, and blue in your projects.  I created my Happy Cake card from one of the freebies that Pattie gives out on the first Friday of the month, but there are lots of fantastic images to choose from in Pattie's Etsy store!

I designed this card so that it opens on point, giving it a different look than a plain square.  On each side of the square (before turning it on point), I die cut the word "Happy" from one of Die-Versions new Express Edge dies and added glossy accents to each of the letters.  The cupcake itself is covered with Cloud Nine glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle and then colored with Distress Markers.  The backdrop is several pieces of Washi tape.

What are you going to create using red, white, and blue?  You have two weeks to upload your project to Pattie's Creations Design Challenge.

Starting with the next challenge, there will be three new designers to replace some of us old-timers (like me).   Welcome Nancy, Valou, and Kelly!  I look forward to seeing all the great creations of this new team.  I also want to send a quick thank you to Pattie and Sandi to let you know how much I've enjoyed being a part of the PCDC team for the past year and a half.

Anne - Having you on our DT for the past 1 1/2 years has been a pleasure! I have always admired your work, your techniques, and great detail in your creations!
I'm reminded of this line in the Wizard of Oz, as Dorothy said to the Scarecrow "I think I'm going to miss you most of all"!

I would certainly be happy to receive a cupcake like this! Fun card, love the Happy all around the edges - a wonderful birthday card. I read your post two times trying to see if you were just feeling blessed to still be on the DT or if you were leaving - if you are leaving then I missed something somewhere. I sure hope you are staying as I missed being a DT with you. Love the card. Hugz!
