I feel like a kid again - coloring this afternoon :-)

What a fun and happy card!  I had so much fun coloring this afternoon and feeling like a kid again.  I don't think you ever grow out of coloring, at least I don't.


Here is a picture of all the pieces, all that is left is putting it all together.  I used a striped embossed paper with a white on white design.  The embossed part resists ink so I sponged on three colors:  Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana.  I took a tissue and lightly rubbed off the color that was sitting on top of the embossed portion of the paper.  I used markers of the same colors to color in the C A K E.  Stamped another Celebrate in Memento black on Crushed Curry cardstock and fussy cut it out.  Popped it up with dimensionals. I used the Banners Framelits to cut out the stamped image and a size larger to cut out the Crushed Curry banner.  Glue everything together and popped the diagonal design with dimensionals.


Don't forget the inside of the card and the envelope.  I try to match both with the card front.

A very happy cheerful card  :-)
