Celebrate

I had this image sitting around waiting to be colored, so that is just what I did today. Didn't really plan on making a card with it yet, but since I had a little bit of time, I decided to turn it into a clean and simple card.

The image is called "Topsy Turvy" and is available at Whimsy Stamps.


I colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil and sponged the edges of the image piece with turquoise ink. Patterned paper is from Stampin up. The sentiment is from Stampin up also.
To finish it off I added a little bit of ribbon and some glitter around the sentiment and the cake. But for some reason glitter doesn't show up well on my pictures.

I'd love to enter this card to the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I should be back Friday with my DT card for stamp something.

Oh, and don't forget to check out this month's Penny Black at all sorts challenge and Design Team Call for lots of prizes to be won, and also the Whimsy Stamps Blog May digi release blog hop for some Whimsy prizes.

Have a great day!!

Hi Ellie

This is gorgeous. Great colours and layout and I love the sentiment very much.

My Niece has chosen a "topsy turvey" cake as a wedding cake .. .. not that she is getting married yet. They will probably have gone out of fashion by the time she and her chappie have enough funds!!!

Love Jules xx
