Sweet Birthday

Hi!  Today's card was created using the sketch from Retro Sketches, the Inkspirational Challenge to use 5 or more stamps, the Anything Goes Challenge at Seize the Birthday and the Anything Goes with Dies at HLS.

This card clears out 2 more sets from my box of NBUS - I'm now down to cough, 32 cough unused stamp sets!  Luckily I don't treat dies as NBUS or I'd be totally overwhelmed ha ha!

This card uses Baked With Love and Sprinkled With Joy by Lawn Fawn.  I just love these images and wanted to use them in a card, but didn't really feel like creating a "kitchen" on my card.  So I used the sentiment banner as the counter-top and that was much less work :)  The images were stamped, Copic-colored and die-cut and then arranged the elements and popped them up with the sentiment banner on foam tape.

The card base is a 5" square Soft Stone base and on top of that I used a white panel die-cut with a stitched die.  

All in all, I used 9 individual images, including the sentiment!

Thanks for visiting.

Cardstock:  Soft Stone (PTI), White, X-Press It

This is such a sweet card, Karren (pun intended)! I love how you colored all of these cute elements, and how you have them perched on the counter top/sentiment banner...looks like the beginning of a fabulous B-Day cake! LOVE this card to pieces!
Do you really have 32 unused stamp sets right now? And, I thought I was bad :)
