Well hope you've all had a fab Christmas...i've had a quite one but nice....and after the New year celebrations we will all be getting back to normal (is there a :0).
First card after Christmas is for the weekly Thursday release over at WHIMSY STAMPS for Meljen Designs....Melissa's come up with another five fab digital images this week it was so hard for me to decide which one i wanted to play with :0) the finish i went with the "Birthday cupcake",this could also be used to celebrate the New year....hence the sentiment i've used which is also available from WHIMSY STAMPS from the "Circle Postmark Sentiments"...the inside of the card can then read either "it's your Birthday" or "it's New year".
I've used Copic markers and Prisma's as my colouring medium and added lots of glamour dust for plenty of sparkle.....i've also added tiny self adhesive pearls to the topping on the cupcake.
The stars have been cut using a Spellbinders star die set and have also been glamour dusted around the edge before layering with 3d foam pads for alittle dimension.
The shaped base card was cut using a Go Kreate die and the image was cut using a Spellbinders labels die.

I'm also entering this card into SIMON SAY'S STAMP CHALLENGE....where this week the theme is "Time to party/Celebrate.

Well that's about it for now...hope you all have a lovely day,
Take care

This is gorgeous x

I love your shaped card. I have invested in the Spellbinders Callibar, can you tell me how you managed to do this shaped card. Is the shape both sides ? Did you have to mount it on another card?

I have been playing but cannot faddom it out xx
