Sweet Birthday

Today is a new sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  Wei's sketch at first threw me, but after a bit of thought I had a few ideas.  I wanted to have a cute critter peeking out from the inside circle, but (much to my shock) I could not find the right critter.  And I have DOZENS of them.  But I forged on and found this adorable Lawn Fawn sundae.


I searched my paper stash and found this cute Queen & Co. cherry pattern paper.  I took my colors from that and colored the image with Copic markers.  My sentiment is from a My Favorite Things birthday sentiment set.

Once I gave up on my first idea, I just kept finding things that coordinated.  Sometimes when we aren't trying is when everything somehow comes together.

Products used:

  • Stamps: Lawn Fawn Here's the Scoop, My Favorite Things Bitty Birthday Wishes
  • Dies: MFT Stitched Mini Scallops
  • Paper: Queen & Co. Fruit Stand
  • Markers: Copics - Chocolate  Sauce E29,E49; Chocolate Ice Cream E21 E23; Strawberry Ice Cream RV10, RV11; Vanilla Ice Cream E50, E51; Cherry RV29; dish YG11, YG13

  1. I think your cherry-topped ice-cream sundae with that lovely paper behind is the perfect substitute for a cute critter Jeanne - lovely!

  2. Between you and Holly, I'm being tempted into the freezer Jeanne! Your ice cream looks wonderful against the cherry paper and I hope you've got some new critters on your wish list now!! Vicky x

  3. What a perfect pairing of paper and image! It looks so yummy and is a gorgeous card!
