Card Patterns Sketch 39 and Gingersnap Creations brad challenge entry

Hi, it's me! I have decided to quit apologizing for the length of time between posts. With my crazy life it is what it is! LOL Today I am posting a card that I made combining two contests. I used the sketch from Card Patterns( and I also figured it had brads on it so I also submitted it for the Gingersnap Creations brad challenge( I used paper from Colorbok's Friendly Forest collection. I just love this paper and have used it for several cards this Fall. I love the simple patterns and bright colors. The large scalloped and punched circle is actually a piece from a larger circle paper and I just cut it to fit the card. It is also from the Friendly Forest collection. I used my Wizard and Spellbinder's Nestabilities to make the main image circle piece. The image of the cake is a stamp from Stampin' Up's set called "That's Funny!". I colored the it with my Koh-i-noor pencils and used Gamsol to blend. I added some Ranger Antique Linen ink to the edges of the image to give a little color to it. I also used my Stardust clear gel pen to add sparkle to the candle flames and the icing on the cake. I stuck a red felt arrow under the circle for fun. And I finished up the card by adding some red ribbon to the bottom of the card and two brads in the upper left corner of the card. Done! Thanks for stopping by.
