Hi everyone! Amy Sheffer is our hostess this month on the OCC! This week, she's challenging everyone to make a humorous card. It can be a funny sentiment, a cute image, or an out-of-the-box way of using a stamped image. Help keep Amy laughing instead of crying, as she turns 40 this month! Happy Birthday, Amy!
Also, please join us in welcoming Julee Tilman as a permanent member of the OCC blog team!! Glad to have you with us, Julee!
Be sure to stop by the OCC Blog for details on the challenge. There also might be SOMETHING in it for you! :)
My card uses another new set from Taylored Expressions. This one is called Sweet Celebration. All of the textured Prism CS (pink, orange and white), orange and pink ribbon, orange and pink brads, and the raspberry soda glitter used on the cherry can be purchased at Taylor's store!
I thought these images would fit into the "cute" category...and it even says to "eat something cute" in the sentiment. If you look at the picture (below) of the inside of the card, I think that little cupcake at the bottom with the squiggly mouth is pretty funny too...that poor little guy who has to hold up the whole bunch, LOL!
The card measures 4.25" x 5.5". The cupcakes were watercolored SU classic ink. An extra birthday cake was stamped in versafine black onyx onto the brown/white polka dot print from SU's Bella Rosa DP, cut out, and paper pieced over the base. The outline around the images was done with a C-1 Cool Gray Copic marker.
