It's Your Birthday!!

Happy Thursday!!
Time to start another awesome challenge at Meljen's Designs!  Did you know that you can now use any image you want on your creations for that challenge!?  You'll get a double entry if you use a Meljen's Designs image, and we always love seeing what you can do with those!

For this weeks challenge, we want to see you use a funny sentiment!  Make us laugh :)
This challenge can always be fun...who doesn't love to receive a funny card in the mail?  I really wanted to do something Halloween related with mummy's and stuff...but just couldn't wrap my head around something funny to say on the card.  So I sifted through my sentiments and knew as soon as I saw this one that I had to use it...even if it has nothing to do with Halloween (I'll try that theme again later :) ).
Bahahahaha!  That sentiment just cracks me up!  Fortunately there is no cake or ice cream around to come out my nose...but I'm still getting a good chuckle from it :)

I chose to use the Triple Treat Cupcakes image from Meljen's Designs for this card.  It's colored in really softly with my Spectrum Noir pencils and blended slightly with some baby oil.  I then covered each of the tops of the cupcakes with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen, the swirls with some Star Dust Stickles, and the hearts with some Glossy Accents.

I wrapped the twine around my card and mounted the sentiment where all the threads met together.  I was thinking of trying to make up a striped straw or something to use instead of the twine, but the twine was just right there on my desk...begging to be used.  So I stuck with that :)

Finished it all off with some clear gems in the corners!  Love this fun birthday card!!

So be sure to swing by Meljen's Designs to check out the rest of the design teams creations, they will crack you up!!!
