I'm sentimental about cake!

Hi everyone, it's Anice here with my card to hopefully inspire you to join in with our crafty challenge this month on Get Funky.  The challenge has been set by Debs and it's all about using a sentiment as a focal point of your creation. So lets see what I made for the 'Make It Sentimental' challenge

My card is made using papers, digital stamps and a sentiment from the Happy Happy Birthday CD ROM.

For the basic background backing paper I used the polka dot paper from the Birthday Girl collection then before I printed it, using the workspace on the CD I over layed the coloured versions of the cupcakes.  I left them the size that they pull over at but as you know if you have any of the Funky Hand Papercraft Factory CDs you can resize them as you wish, right up to A4 without any loss of sharpness to the image.

I layered the created backing paper onto some plain dark pink paper the stuck it onto a 6" square white base card.  This card was created for Ians neice's birthday and at age five she likes a bit of bling! So, I sprayed the whole card with silver glitter spray from Crafters Companion and left it over night to dry.  I think you can see the glitter pretty well in the picture above.

While the base card was drying I resized one of the sentiments 'have a YUMMY birthday' from the the Happy Happy Birthday CD and printed it out to top the card.  I coloured the YUMMY word in, using Letraset Promarkers after layering the sentiment on matching dark pink paper as with the base backing paper.

Once everything was dry, I have to say I was very impressed that the silver spray sparkle didn't fall off at all or rub off on my hands when I was working with it to finish the card, I layered the sentiment with 3mm deep foam pads to give it a decent height!
