Skateboard birthday

I am loving fall! The leaves here in New England are almost at peak. I went apple picking yesterday, and made a pumpkin cheesecake today. :) Next week I will have a fall card to share with you, but for today I chose to share a birthday card for a young man using SU's Extreme Skateboard image and patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket. I used an airbrush with an Old Olive marker to carry the distressed look of the patterned paper through the other elements along with a few strips of Going Grey cardstock. The sentiment is also stamped in Old Olive and is from PTI's Enjoy the Ride set.
Enjoy the fall! :)

Sweet Cupcake

Happy Monday all. Today's card was created for a wonderful, long-time friend of mine. The big, fun cupcake is a sticker from the Sweet Day collection by Echo Park, as is the colorful polka dot design paper. I mounted the sticker on some white cardstock that was run through my Big Shot using an embossing plate. The sentiment is from Enjoy the Ride by PTI and stamped in Ridding Hood Red ink. Lastly, the base of the card is dark, rich Early Espresso :)
Have a sweet day!
