Polkadoodle Challenge 14 - Big Birthday's

It's time for another Polkadoodle challenge and I've set the theme this week! As its my Birthday today the challenge is:

Big Birthday Numbers

So that can either mean a big Birthday or a big number! For more details on how to enter, pop over to the challenge blog!

I've used the wonderful Sugary Cake template from Paper Boutique Vol 1 and I've layered up the different elements with foam pads. The drippy icing has been lashed with glitter glue and the numbers have been added with wire that I wrapped around a pen so its curly!
I've embossed the lower layers of the cake with a Marianne Creatables embossing folder and also the card blank. The ribbon is from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Fab n Funky: Embossing
The Pixie Cottage: Sweet Treats
Just Keep On Creating: Anything Goes
Flourishes: Birthday
Going Grey With Scrap Creations: Birthday

  • Template: Polkadoodles
  • Dies: Marianne Creatables embossing folder and Sizzix Round a Bout Alphabet dies
