{7.2.2013} sparkly birthday

sparkly birthday time

Birthday cards are in demand at my house.  I can never keep up.  Whenever I think I’m good for a bit, bam, I’m behind.  So when my new Simon Says Stamp card kit arrived, I broke that baby out in record time.


Here is something funny… gold is my least favorite color (next to purple).  I never thought I would use the gold sequins that came in my multi-color pack.  Well, never say never because here they are.  Lol.  And I actually really love them.  You’ll see them again soon.  I can’t seem to put them down all of a sudden.

I adore this little cupcake.  I’m going to break these stamps back out and make a set of cards soon.  This design is so easy to replicate, I know I can whip them out in one afternoon.  Did you notice that this is a skinny card… 3.5 x 5.5.  Super cute right?

Linking this guy up to the Simon Says Stamp challenge: anything goes.
{ETA} I’m submitting this birthday card to the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

    Lisa, this is such an adorable card! It’s CAS perfection! I’m with you on the gold color being an unpopular choice in my craft room. But you pulled it off beautifully!

    I’m with you about gold, it’s not my favorite but I’m kind of liking it lately. I think the subtle touches of gold look GREAT with you cupcake. It really makes it more festive.

  4. Lindsey

    It’s funny you should say you don’t like gold. I don’t either, but I found myself looking at your card and thinking that maybe I should buy some gold sequins. Then I read that you felt the same way!!

    I love how you’ve scattered the stars (and those sequins). I felt the same way about sequins in general until I started playing with them. And I think we have the same colour ‘thing’ – I definitely don’t do much purple, and although I don’t *hate* gold I never reach for it.

    I’m a bit fond of gold, and I’m so glad that these sequins found a fun home on this beautiful card Lisa!
