Celebrating Get Creative's 2nd Blogversary

Get Creative Challenges

Get Creative Challenges is turning 2 and we are celebrating this occasion with the 52nd challenge that has the theme of Happy Birthday. We have two sponsors for this challenge - AliciaBel and Dr Digi.
My card used a digistamp called Alice & The Cake from AliciaBel. I did, though, change it a little by adding two candles on the slice of cake.
The gorgeous pink and foiled spot background is a vellum panel from The Craft Stall, bought from my local discount shop. (Look at my previous card to also see another of the panels from the packet.) The digistamp was coloured using Copic Markers and fussy cut, then mounted on an oval of white cardstock. The sentiment is a layered die cut using pink cardstock and Tim Holtz Alterations/Sizzix Celebrate cutting die set. You may be aware already that I love this set and his other, Friendship cutting die set. I use them so much.

Anyway. To complete the look I painted some pink Wink of Stella over the die cut and some clear Wink of Stella over the girl's bow. The faux stitching was also written using the pink WOS.

I'm doing more "simple" cards these days. Maybe it's a sign my style is changing or maybe it's because they're faster to do. What do you think??? Let me know what you think about my change in direction.

I'm off now. Pop on over to Get Creative Challenges, enjoy the party celebrations over there, and maybe you can enter a birthday card or two. (You can never have too many on hand.)

Bye for now.



  1. Isn't she just wonderful Janelle, love how you have coloured her and used some fun bright pinks!

    1. Thanks Therese. I've got a stack of birthdays coming up in Dec, so she'll come in handy then. I'll have to look at some of your Masculine makes and get ideas for the men in my life. :)


Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you've enjoyed my blog.
