Golden Birthday Blog Hop with Deedee's Digis

Good Morning!  Thanks for joining us for this Golden Birthday Blog Hop.  We're here to celebrate our fellow and beloved DT member Darsie who is celebrating her golden birthday!  So if you arrived here from Kelly's blog, then you're on the right track.  If not, head to Crafting with Deedee's Digis blog to get started on this birthday celebration. Along the way, you're collect the letters each DT member is hinting to and then when you've collected them all, email the word to Deedee for a chance to win a $50 Deedee's Digis gift certificate.  But you also have to stop and leave our birthday girl some love and wishes!

So here we go!  Here's the birthday card that I made for Darsie.  Sadly, it'll be late as I didN't get it doNe in time to mail it iN time for her special day.


I had a lot of fuN with this card!  I pulled out my embossing powders aNd Stickles aNd set out to decorate a cake!  I also got lots of iNspiration from challenge blogs:  Sketches by Carly (sketch), Dutch Dare (birthday) aNCharisma Cardz (aNything goes).  I used gold embossing powder for the candles aNd the base of the cake.  I theN used silver embossing powder for the cake staNd.  Gold Stickles was perfect for sparkly icing.



In this close up you can see the glittered icing.  You can also see for the flourish I added behind the image, that I embossed a piece of scrap card stock with gold embossing powder and then with a die from QuicKutz I cut the flourishes out of it.  Pretty!

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest
Paper:  Linen Closet (DCWV)
Copics:  B60, E53, Y06, Y11, Y28, YR16
Tools:  Heat gun, silver & gold embossing powders, Flourish die (QuicKutz), Cuttlebug
Embellishments:  gold ribbon (Offray), gold Stickles (Ranger)


Well thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is over to Paula's blog.  Have fun and don't forget to stop by Darsie's to leave her some well wishes.  Have a great day!

Hi Melissa Sweetie! Just wanted to say I so love the fact that you took the colour of gold and added into the creation of your ever so elegant card. Embossing is such a wonderful technique and it is so great to see that some folks still love to use it. Thanks for sharing another wonderful creation with us. Hugs.
