Mod Birthday

As soon as I saw Laura's Sketch 16 on 2 Sketches 4 You, I knew what I wanted to do with it.

I've had a small swatch of colours hanging by my desk for months, and have already used them on a card, but wanted to try another. Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, and Soft Sky (or Bashful Blue). SU's Jersey Shore DSP just happens to have those colours, plus Wild Wasabi, which I love too.

(Click on the photo to see a larger version - the smaller version doesn't show the detail well)

Chloe has a friend who is one day older than her, and I wanted to make his card in advance (well, two weeks is far in advance for me!). I used my Sakura glitter pen to add lots of sparkle. I debated whether I should add some to the stars on the background - what do you think?

I used Crystal Effects for the icing and popped up the spaceship and then the cake on that. Doesn't he look like he's delivering it?

Stamps: So Many Scallops (SU), It's a Mod, Mod World, Smells Like Cake (The Cat's Pajamas)
Paper: Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Jersey Shore DSP (SU)
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky, Brilliant Blue (SU)
Accessories: Blender pen, Crystal Effects, 1 3/8" circle punch (SU), Glitter Dots (Jesse James), Glitter pen (Sakura), 1 1/2" circle punch (Marvy Uchida)

I'd definitely add some sparkle to the little balls on the end of the stars.

Love the card! I am another vote for adding glitter to the stars. You can never do wrong with glitter. =)
