Paper Sweeties August Release Day!!!

Hi Friends!

How are you?  I hope things are well in your world.  Today is the  release day for Paper Sweeties!  Yeah!  Now you can go and purchase those wonderful stamp sets that Debbie designed for this month and, of course, any of the other sweet stamp sets that your little heart desires!:-)

Today I am highlighting the Celebrate stamp set, which shows the darling cake with candles, banner, and balloons.  Also, the stamp set includes other party items such as party hats, ice cream cone, presents, and cupcake! 

For my card, I started with a cream card base and paired it with Basic Grey paper.  So many fun patterns with this paper.  I couldn't decide which one to use and ended up using several.  I colored the cake with copics and used stickles for the frosting.  I added lots of gems on the cake, banner, and border.  Yummy seam binding ribbon of Oatmeal Cream and Ambrosia Cantalope!  And, the sentiment is from the stamp set, You Make Me Smile

Stop on over to Paper Sweeties to see what the other design team members created!  You won't be disappointed!  I thank you for dropping by and viewing my card today!  Have a great day, hugs!
