Another year older… {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi, everyone! I’m currently in the mountains on Easter vacation, but I still have a card for you. It’s a colorful birthday card this time, featuring Tall Cake. I know I’ve used this image a lot, but it’s a favorite of mine. I teamed it up with a doily, some pieces of Lawn Fawn patterned paper, a few sentiment strips and some enamel dots. And that’s pretty much it. Simple, right?

I wanted a very colorful cake, but had a hard time deciding what color her dress should be (and subsequently what color cardbase I needed). I went with a really bright green. It really is super bright. A Granny Smith apple is pale in comparison, this green is so vivid! I recently spent a crafty weekend with some really good crafty friends. I borrowed a die from one of them and a few sentiment strips from another.

I wanted to use enamel dots that matched the colors of the patterned paper matted behind the sentiment strips. The purple one matches better in real life, purple is a color that’s really hard to get right in photographs.
