Lain's prompt today was "So You Say it's Your Birthday" (and it really is Lain's birthday - hope it's a good one!!) which for some reason made me think of some of the cakes I've made for the girls over the years. I used this sketch from Elle's Studio Sketch Thursday challenge ...
... and came up with this.
This also has components on it for a couple of the Apron Strings Birthday month challenges - namely Day #9 (create a layout in less than an hour - this took me 53 minutes) and Day #11 (create a floral embellishment.)
Here is a close up of some of those floral embellishments. I used my Big Shot and the Fun Flowers die from Stampin' Up! The title was a last minute "aha!" moment. I was looking for a large 6 in all my letter stickers. When I saw the @ symbol the title just came together!
All the patterned papers are from American Crafts Celebration line and I love how this one has this embossed pattern of fabric swags or bunting. Seemed perfect for a party layout but a little goes a long way! To finish the grouping I added some more scraps and another flower.
Here's the third layered flower that I made.
Thanks for looking! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
