Birthday at Christmastime and my Guest Designer spot

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be picked as 1st place choice over at Delightful Challenges and so was given the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on their main blog Digital Delights by Louby Loo. 

I was given the choice of a digi stamp to work with and picked this one called 'Tiered Cake' as I could see that it would work in so many ways.... birthday, anniversary, wedding, christmas and just because we love cake. I decided to go for 'Birthday at Christmastime' just to be a bit different and hopefully give a bit of inspiration for those times you want to send one card to fit two occasions.
The papers are Kaisercraft and Raspberry Road Designs and although they are both from christmas collections the designs will suit any occasion. I used Promarkers to colour the image and followed through with traditional christmas red, white and green for the 'icing' on the cake. There is some Sakura clear glaze on the red and glitter pen on the swirls but it doesn't show up in the photo. The flower is made by paper pleating a scrap of the spotty paper and using Marianne dies LR0129 & LR0156 for the base and leaves. Finally I added a sentiment which I made on the computer.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Dawny's Sketch'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Sketchie Free For All' (I chose no 47)
I Love Promarkers challenge 'Anything Goes'
Ooh La La challenge 'Seeing Spots and Dots'
Tuesday Throwdown challenge 'Lots of Layers'
Moving Along With The Times challenge 'Let's Go Dotty'

Thanks for dropping by today
