Celebrate with New Challenge at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog

WHOOPIE!!!!! I'm one of the newest members of Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog. Here is my very first post and granted it is late due to my having Shingles which affected my eyes and caused blurred vision.

With this all being said, I can't wait to show you my DT project with the theme being that of "CELEBRATE"! Ok, those who know me really well, know that I want to break out in song with Kool and the Gang but first let me share with you my card which of course is one of my favorite to create with - Alice in Wonderland!!! 

For my project, I chose to use Crafty Girls Creations at Stitchy Bear Wonderland Cake. I fell in love with this image and what's not to love with the Cheshire Cat with his grin donning the Mad Hatter's Hat!!!! Did I mention that I have a birthday this month and I sure would love a cake "in this style"!!!!

  • card measures 5.5 x 7 inches with Recollections card stock with Recollections Black and White Stack for background 
  • Wonderland Cake was colored using Copic R20, Prisma Colored Pencils, Whispers Markers,  and gel pen accents and I outlined the image (gee, I don't know whether I like outlining or not but sometimes it just screams, "I need it!"
  • film strip was cut using EK Film Strip border punch using black Recollection Card Stock
  • ribbon is from my stash which was wrapped around the background and then tied into a bow
  • word "Celebrate" was cut using the built-in alphabet on my Cricut E-2 and red Recollection card stock
  • sentiment, "It's your birthday! Time to par-tee!!!" had been from Create with TLC chalked around the edges mounted on a red scrap and then matching background paper from the front 

I thank you for stopping by and visiting today. Don't forget to visit and enter your project at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog . I can't wait to see your creations!
