Michelle Perkett - DT Call!

Michelle Perkett Studios is having a DT call, and I thought I might try out.  She gave us a cute little Birthday Cake digi image to use.  You can find all the information on her BLOG, the deadline is August 15th. 

So here is what I came up with.  I went shopping for some new papers to use, and love how they just go perfectly with the card.  This was also my first attempt at making "rolled rose buds", (try saying that a few times).  Quite easy to do, and they look pretty good.  I brushed on some diamond glaze for a shine and harden them a bit, then add a sprinkling of glitter.   The leaves were cut out with my Cricut.  I used the Martha Stewart Optic Dot border punch on the DP behind the image.  The corners of the pink card stock were punched with the Fiskars Corner Punch.  The sketch used for this card was provided by Sketch Saturday.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges.
Stamp Something - Photo Inspiration Somethings.
Sketch Saturday - Challenge #115 Sketch Provided.
