Happy Birthday...FUSION Challenge~Birthday Bash (Sept. 22), Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #1~Celebrate

Hello!

Time for another awesome FUSION~Birthday Bash challenge, where we're inviting you to draw inspiration from the photo or the sketch or BOTH! I'm especially enamoured with the party decor of the photo...the bold black/white stripes contrasted with the pastel polka-dots, the tiered cake, the aqua cake plates, the treats...love. it. all!


Since I couldn't fit all the elements that inspired me on one card (well, I could have...epic jumbled mess that would have been!), I made three CAS creations that I hope will make you smile as brightly in seeing them as I was while creating them. All products are from Concord and 9th (my flames of loving their products continues to burn brightly....) Eat CakeLove You, Mean It (the bigger polka-dots) and Painted Thank You (the wee black dots).

First, polka-dots and cake...


then stripes, shimmer gold card-stock stars, and a blue cake...

 (The cloudy weather didn't catch my black/white very well...grrr!)

followed by more stripes, shimmer teal card-stock stars and a pink cake. I love cake; can you tell?


Need more inspiration? Check out what my talented team has designed...dazzle (and maybe even more cake *grin*) guaranteed:


Our previous challenge was a resounding success with outstanding
creativity shared. Let's keep the moment going strong!

Turning the stage over to you!
See you in the gallery!

  1. Stripes AND polkie dots...be still my rapidly beating heart!!! Three adorable cards - love the simplicity and the 'whimsical' feel that the stripes and dots create! You've got the niece and nephew covered with these cards - dots for her, stripes for him :)

  12. Fantastic trio of birthday delight! I really like that first one with the great polka dots. I'm a polka dot kinda gal, I think. They just make me grin with delight, as does this card. I really like how you got three very different looks on your cards. Thank you for delighting us with your great cards! Happy Friday, my sweet friend!! Happy hugs!! :)
