Garden Party Birthday Wishes

It's Thursday and it's Progressive Challenge Image Preview Day for Delightful Inspiration at Card Ideas
This is the next image, "Garden Party" that will be emailed to those who participate in the current FREE Stamp of the Month Artist's Challenge. This is not available in the store yet, but will be emailed to those who participate in this week's challenge. You still have 24 hours to join us, and then you too, can receive this for free!



This was a really fun and happy image to color.  You can get an entirely different look by changing up the colors of the flowers.  I went with yellows and oranges...they are my happy colors.  I purposely printed this image just a little bit bigger than I normally would.  I wanted the whole focus of the card to be on the cute image.  The patterned paper is from DCWV's Citrus Stack.  I love all the yummy yellows, greens, blues and oranges in that stack.  The sentiment is from the Wow Flowers stamp set by SU!.  I added some chunky glitter to the cupcake icing to make it look like it was sprinkled with some chunky sugar.  I, also added Glossy Accents to the centers of the flowers, the cherry on top of the cupcake and the bee's wings.

If you didn't play along with us last week and still want to nab this image, it can be found here on Friday.
