Sweet Sunday 9

Three days of sitting around the TV after my surgery was driving me bonkers! I finally broke down and had my hubby bring a bunch of my craft stuff down into the kitchen so I could create.

A simple sketch with lots of possibilities this week. I have a pile of birthday's coming up in April and May so thought I would take this opportunity to tackle one of them.

I had a little trouble getting a true color on this photo. The solid colors I used were Certainly Celery and Almost Amethest. The patterned piece is Susan Branch. My photo turned out more blue than the periwinkle color it should be.

The stamp is Penny Black. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the Certainly Celery piece. I also added some crystal laquer to the candles, icing and the frog's eyes and tux. I cut the circle and scallop with my Nestabilities dies and double stamped the image so I could cut one out and pop it over the other. I did the coloring with my Prisma colored pencils and blended with gamsol.
The inside will say "Don't worry, it'll be a piece of cake for you!"

Thanks Karen for jump starting me with another great sketch!
