Sweet Watercolor Birthday


After getting home from being away for a few days, the first thing I needed to do (after laundry!) was get in my craft room and create a little!  I've been wanting to play with this Concord & 9th set (Happy Day) and today seemed like a good day to do so!

I gold embossed the floral cake image and watercolored using a few of my favorite colors.  I added a few small sequins and used clear Wink of Stella on the icing for a hint of sparkle.

 

 Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:



 












A new challenge on the block!!!
(I selected the diagonal: heat embossing, free space, gold)
