Mojo Monday ~ Bright Birthday

Good Morning Friends!

It was an ice skating rink out in front of my house this morning... looks like I'll be sticking close to home.. (my hubby still isnt at work and it's 10:15 am here).. I hope he get's there safely. Its a cold and dreary day here, so I really wanted to go with something bright.

I have to tell you, I felt totally challenged by the sketch over on mojo Monday this morning... but once I got going, this went together with not too much trouble at all!

This is a square card measuring 5 1/4" square.
Layer 2: 4 7/8" square real red
Layer 4: 4 3/4" Designer paper.

the other layers of designer paper on top are the flip side of the numbers...

I used paper piecing to color my cupcake base and incorporated the pattern from above into the focal point further down my card.

The sentiment stamp is another from the same one I keep using this week, Curly cute. I used beads for the sprinkles, and large funky red glitter for the candle and flame. I attached both with tombo multipurpose adhesive by SU.

The paper banner was made from scraps leftover.. :D (love that).

I hope you have a wonderful week!
Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
