*~*Happy Birthdays*~*

October is a really busy month at my house. I have 3 friends w/birthdays, my mother & eldest granddaughter's birthday, my wedding anniversary and my own birthday ~ WHEW!!!

This is the card I made for my mother. Like me, she loves the fall colors. I recently purchased this digi stamp from Faith over @ Delightful Inspiration's. She has some wonderful images there.

I cut out the 2 'closest' leaves and painted them w/Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust for some wonderful shimmer. Then popped them up on the card. Don't they look great!!

Paper: White, Brown, Burnt Orange, Goldenrod cardstock
Stamps: Fall Leaves Digi Stamp - Designed to Delight
Sanded (Background)- Stampin' Up
Colors: Image was colored in using Adobe Photoshop
Edges inked w/Distressed Ink Antique Linen
Misc: CuttleBug Happy Birthday folder, Fairy Dust CI Panits, black & natural twine, pale yellow button

Now, my oldest granddaughter just turned 5. And we all know that it's not the card they go after, but the gift. But I loved this little birthday cupcake. I printed it out twice, once on chocolate cardtsock, then on pink. I then painted the pink 'frosting' with the Creative Inspirations "TuTu Pink' paint. And then colored then candle and put a little shimmer on there as well with my Gelly Roll pen. Then I cut out the candle and popped it up.
