Eat Cake......{Birthday Card}

 Happy Friday!!!!!
Hope everyone had a GREAT week and have fun things planned for the weekend.
My oldest has his first regular season football game under the excited about that and my youngest is playing baseball tonight and tomorrow afternoon.
 Other than that, we hope to have a very relaxing weekend of just hanging out at home :)

I wanted to share a birthday card I made for a few challenges using this adorable cake and sentiment freebie I picked up over at Neat and Tangled...
Here is my card...hope you like it!!!

So for my card I used the sketch from this week's Seize the Sketch and rotated it so it was on it's side....

Then using my Silhouette Designer Studio, I imported the digi's and went about designing my card.
I traced and then added the black lines back to the adorable cake so when I printed it out I could add some color using my copic markers. But before I did that I made a frame around my image so when I added it to my card it gave the cake a little more added color and more room to pop up. I also added some stickles to the frosting and cute!

Then for the sentiment, I added it to the size mat I wanted for my card, printed the sentiment out and then had my silhouette cut the mat. Again using my copics, I added some color and my card was ready to put together!

The papers I used for my card are from Fancy Pants~Wonderful Day paper pack and the card base is from SU~ a gift from my friend Norma (yeah I have been hoarding this card base and found the perfect card to use it for!!)

So there is my birthday card....What do you think?????
