Big Day!

 Wow! I thought I'd NEVER get around to posting my February cards. When I went to take pictures of the them over a week ago, I had ran out of memory on my memory card and living away from local retailers that sell them, I had to wait until I got out to get one. I couldn't stand erasing the memory card to reuse it, as I have a fear that someday, when my computer crashes, it will be a day that I haven't downloaded them to my portable hard drive.  So, anywho....onto the card.  I have to say that this stamp set offering from Salebration was one of my FIRST choices.  I love the font and I love that it can be colored, paper pieced, or as on this card, just left without either.  I wanted to use the Best Year Ever DSP  and ribbon that is ALSO FREE during Salebration, so it made it very easy to come with an idea for a color scheme. And they are so fresh and yummy!
 I stamped out the sentiment onto white and used my Chalk Talk Framelits to cut it out.  I used my Stampin' Write markers in Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral to color in just a little bit of the tag.  I stamped out the cake in Chocolate Chip ink onto Sahara Sand card stock and left it uncolored and punched it out using the 1 3/4" circle punch and layered it onto a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock that I cut using the Starburst Framelit dies.
I stuck both the tag and the cake image onto a piece of Sahara Sand card stock that I ran partially through the ZigZag embossing folder, leaving the bottom portion un-embossed so I could stamp out the rest of the sentiment as seen below.
I added a strip of Gold Shimmer paper down over a small piece of the Best Year Ever DSP and then tied the bow from the Best Year Ever Accesory Pack ribbon to finish it all.
Come back soon to see the rest of February's cards ....
