AEI{Heart}U Challenge: Embellish It!

Hello friends,

So this is my second post for the day.  If you are stopping by for the Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Card Creations 12 hop, click here or just scroll down!

It's time again for another AEI{Heart}U Challenge.  This week's theme is Embellishments and here is my take:

I created my card base from Fog cardstock and covered it with a panel of Pixie card stock that I stamped with all the fun streamers and stars from Cake and Candles. Next on a project life journaling card, I stamped the cake stand from Fanfare in blue ink.  I topped the cake stand with a cake I "baked" using one of my favorite sentiments from Cake and Candles set stamped with red ink on Fizz card stock. I rounded the top corners of the cardstock to give it more of a "cakey" look  The candles atop the cake are from Fill in the Blank.

I embellished the candles with tiny pearls that I colored yellow with a Copic marker.  I mounted a strip of patterned paper and the stamped journaling card to the project and finished it off with a sprinkling of Citrus Blend sequins. 

I do hope you will be able to join us for this week's challenge!  Be sure to stop by the AE Challenge blog for all the details and to link up your take! I can't wait to see what you create!  

Thanks for stopping by!
