Mojo Monday #387 Glimmer Birthday

I love sketch challenges!

My problem is that I rarely have time to participate but I woke up early this morning to get my mojo on.

The Mojo Monday blog had this great sketch today:


And so I made this:

cake glimmer LH

Glimmer paper is tricky to take a picture of but it’s peeking out from holes I die cut along the side, the bottom and the balloon string.  The silver glimmer paper repeats 3x but my red repeats just 2x, which was less than I wanted but anytime I tried to add more red, it seems too ‘matchy’!

I resisted the urge to put a bow or something on it since I want to use it for a masculine bday card this month.

I used the Sale-A-Bration freebie stamp set called Big Day in Night of Navy ink.  Stamped it again in Real Red, fussy cut that and glued in place.  The lighter blue cs is Marina Mist and Silver Glimmer paper for the sparkle.  The balloon is punched with my 3/4″ circle punch, sponged a little.

The little cut out dots are using the new Mini Treat Bag thinlits Dies.  There are 3 super border dies in the set!  It’s a pricey set of dies but so much you can do with the accessories alone.

Tomorrow I’ll post the Weekly Deals and anything else new coming out.

Until then
Go Stamp Something!
