Happy birthday!

Hi there!

I have another card to share today... this time it's for The card concept 's challenge where we were provided with a gorgeous inspiration picture, with the challenge to make a birthday card :


                                                  


I made a card in the CAS style, using one main image, minimal layers and embellishments , and lots of white space.






This is how I translated the inspiration:

The 2 layers of the cake : 2 embossed circle frames where the embossing also represents the texture of the cake.

Polka dotted mushroom : Flower & leaves in the same colors and pattern.

That's it for today!

Thanks for visiting!

THIS IS STUNNING!!! I love how you incorporated the polka dots! I tried, unsuccessfully, to do this but could not come up with an idea! Your idea is beyond brilliant!!! Fabulous vibrant contrasting colors! The embossed circles are awesome!

This card has just rocketed to the the #1 spot of my Favorite Hannelie Cards list! You're amazing dear friend!
