Cake for a Special Birthday

      Today's card features an image from Conie Fong called Abbie with Cake and it's my first DT card for the month of August.  Isn't she adorable?  She just had to be done in shades of pink because she's so perfectly sweet and girly.

     I colored her with ProMarkers and cut the image with a die from Spellbinders.  The 4 corner pieces were originally 2 die cuts (also Spellbinders) which I cut in half and added to the corners of the image.  

     The background is a (very) old piece of scrapbooking paper.  I'm sure it's been in my stash at least a dozen years!  I know it was one of the first papers I ever bought for scrapbooking and that was before I really got into card making.  I started blogging about a year after I shifted over to card making and that was in February of  2011 so that would be 11+ years and it was in the scrapbooking stash for a couple of years before that.

     The satin ribbon and hand-tied, double loop, bow are Really Reasonable Ribbon and have also been in the stash for a long time.  Sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die, then I inked the edges with marker before applying it to the card.


     Come play with us this month.  Remember, #Conie Fong has 2 challenges each month on the Facebook page for anyone using a Conie Fong image; one for coloring of images only, and the other for completed projects using colored images.  You can win more of Conie's fabulously cute images!  
     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Super cute card with this adorable image and the background paper goes so well with it! I too have some really old background papers in my stash, tried getting rid of them on several occasions but never could do it and back on the shelf they went. I did use a really old one on my DT card for this challenge as well :-)

Thank you so much for joining us this week at Stamping Sensations!

Another cute make, Connie! The die cut corners are the perfect rounding off (can corners round something off??) to your image.
