Just Us Girls #190 - Photo Inspiration Challenge and a Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone!  The Just Us Girls challenge this week is a photo inspiration challenge.  Marisa chose this fabulous picture of a cake.  Great colors, polka dots, chevrons, and a cool flower.

 Here's a close-up of the photo so you can see the details better.
I loved the yellow, white, and gray color combo and the polka dots, so I started with that.  The gray dp is from an old SU paper pack, and the yellow is from Authentique's Blissful paper pack.  I used SU's basic gray paper and the yellow dp to make the flower using Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms II #1 die.  I added a yellow glitter dot in the center and two off to the side.  The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Style stamp set stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  This is all mounted on a Daffodil Delight card base.

Our design team member Vicki had a birthday this week, so we thought we'd make birthday cards for her.  Happy Birthday Vicki!  I stamped the inside of the card with PTI's new Ruby Rose stamp set.  Love that stamp!  I also used my new We Are Memories Keepers Envelope Punch Board (an envelope maker) to make an envelope out of the gray dp.  So cool!  (No picture of that...sorry!)

I used the Deconstructed Sketch for my layout, and pretty much CASED Jen's card.  Loved it!
