The Paper Shelter's First Challenge!

I saw that the paper shelter were starting a new challenge this week, and all you had to do was use one of their images, plus some buttons and bows.  I love their cake image - its perfect for birthdays  as everyone loves a great big birthday cake!

I decided to combine the entry with a couple of other challenges that fitted the theme.  Cupcake craft challenges this week have a theme of cake or ice-cream, so this image fits that theme.

Our creative corner wanted us to use a sentiment stamp to create a background.  I cut a mat of the cake out and covered the original image, and over stamped a do-crafts multiple happy birthday stamp in grey to form a background.  I like this technique as it brings the main image forward.

Here are the challenges I am entering this card into: - Buttons and Bows  - Cake and Icecream - Using words as a background

Thanks for stopping by :-)
