FS457 - Birthday Cake

I have some news today - I've been ask to join the hostess team for the weekly Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoaststampers. I've been a member of SCS since I started stamping in early 2006 and it's a really fun community of stampers.

My first Sunday to act as hostess will be November 29, but in the meantime, I'm playing along with this week's choice: mhines.

The idea is that you choose a card that the FS has made and then CASE it, making at least 2 changes, and list the differences between your card and hers (or his!). I chose this card to CASE:

I focused on
-colour scheme
-scallops (created with a dot stamp)

I changed
- size of the card
-oval element to a circle
-positioning of the 'banner' ribbons
-I referred to cake rather than having a cake image.

I used MFT Birthday Wishes & Balloons, Delicious Birthday, Simon Says Stamp Lots of Dots, Stampin' Up label die

Congrats! SCS is blessed to have you! Love how you've changed the original card, and made it completely your own. This is bright and happy, and the perfect birthday card. The black mat around your focal point really makes everything pop. Great card! LOVE this!!! Bev

Congrats pal! They DEFINITELY made the right choice in asking you to join their team! Reason for me to get back in touch with SCS (visited it pretty much daily in my early crafting days!).

Adore the stamped circle. Reminds me of a clown at the circus, juggling a bunch of brightly colored balls. Made me smile then, makes me smile big now...all over my face!!!
