Chocolate Cake Wishes

I discovered this week that Operation Write Home has a card challenge blog also. Sunday they offered a sketch and today they are having a Mid Week Throwdown. I've added the challenge blog to my side bar on those 2 days, if you don't already know about this hop over and check it out. Another fun place to play and a worthy cause on top of it.
This is an easel card for Always Playing With Paper and as you can see my favorite frosting-Liquid Applique. I got a new pack of birthday paper from The Paper Studio-Birthday Extravaganza so that's where I pulled my colors from. This will make a perfect birthday card for one of the guys.
3 Challenges:
Supplies: 4 1/2" X 5 1/2" Easel Card, Papers: Stampin Up-Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Very Vanilla, The Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza, Stamps: Stampin Up-Fun & Fast Notes, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Ink: CTMH-Z2111 Chocolate, Stampin Up-Bermuda Bay, CTMH markers, Liquid Applique-White, Sakura Gelly Roll Pen-Clear Star, Coluzzle shape cutter template-Circle, Fiskars border punch-Scallop Sentiment, small corner rounder, StampinUp-Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, make a wish brad unknown, ribbon-Michael's, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
