Go Forth and Eat Cake

Good evening on a lovely Victoria Day for us in Canada.  Which means, we had a long weekend, and it was a good one!  Family time, dinner with friends, kids with friends over, my husband and our middle son joining other Dads and sons in the youth group for paint-ball, all good stuff.

I managed to SQUEEK in the TCP Challenge from this past week tonight.  It's a Sketch Challenge and I made a fun little HB card - as in Happy Birthday.


I thought it had a sort of Americana look - in a fresh new palette.  Mr. Bunny is colored with Copics and paired with MME Dolled Up DP, with some stitching and scalloped accents.  Because the paper has some woodgrain in it I highlighted that on the "hb" circle with a woodgrain texture plate, and then mimiced that in the corduroy button.  


So I encourage all of you....Go Forth and Eat Cake!  Birthday or not!  :)

Thanks for dropping by!
