Today I am combining 2 different challenges than I usually do. The first challenge is an Issue Challenge from Club CK. You are to use a prop to help tell your story in your layout. Mine is the Birthday cake. I originally wanted to use this layout also for the weekly challenge but I did not get it finished in time for the Birthday layout.
The other challenge comes from Scrap Your Story. Anything relating to Spring on your project. By the time my birthday rolls around in March, I am ready for Spring. I also love flowers, butterflies & the pastel colors for spring. As you can tell from my layout.

I inked my canvas using a blending tool. It takes a little bit of time but not too long. It helps you get just the right shade of color that you want. I cut out the 2013 from the washi tape but it looks like it is not going to stay on unless I glue it. I added stickles to the number 40, butterflies wings & flowers for that extra bling. I used both the Spun Sugar & Diamond stickles on the yellow & teal flower. I made the pinwheels from scraps left over when I punched out the mats with the mini 8 punch. I used my paper piercer for the brads in the middle of the pinwheels. I punched out the borders with the 6x6 papers.
I will be looking at this layout for a few days since we are going to be in a winter weather advisory starting tomorrow. Wishing it would warm up & stay that way.
Have a good rest of the week.
Happy Scrappin!
