Sassy Birthday

Today we are celebrating International Scrapbook Day at Time 4Scrap and we're using a sketch supplied by our very own Milo.  The theme is Anything Goes, but you must use the sketch.

As you can see, I've rotated the sketch to the right and the image (Birthday Cake Sassy), which is colored with Copic markers, is from Sassy Studio Designs.

The square directly behind the image started out as a piece of white cardstock and then I kept adding Distress Paints (and blotting off sections) until I was happy with the color.  You'll also notice that sometimes I don't apply adhesive to all four sides of a piece, leaving the edges to curl a little.  This is a little trick I use to give something a bit more dimension without adding pop dots.

Die-Versions Happy Birthday Corner Concepts die was used to create the next square, by die cutting it twice.   Spica glitter pens adds a bit of sparkle to the letters.  The bow is made from bar grain ribbon (the kind that curls easily) and a big heart brad holds it in place.

Enjoy using the sketch, which is an easy one to use as is or to tweak as you like.
