Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Birthday Sundaes Challenge #10! This week's challenge is to use PEARLS & LACE plus a Birthday Sentiment.

This week's card uses the Viva la Verve May Week1 Sketch.

I replaced the oval background for a Lace cut from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge. I used DS to resize the Lace cut to 4.346" x 3.557".

For color inspiration, I used this week's Splitcoast Color Combination Challenge #323 - Rich Razzleberry, Very Vanilla, Regal Rose.


Instead of using SU! cardstock, I used Bazzill "Brandywine", "French Vanilla" and "Piglet" cardstock colors.

I misted the Lace cut with some Glimmer Mist, but its very hard to tell from the picture. The crinkle ribbon is from My Craft Spot and is absolutely great to work with. The Lace Ribbon underneath is from my local fabric store.

The sentiment is digtal and I can't remember where I got it from - sorry.

Now, its YOUR turn! Head on over to Birthday Sundaes to see more PEARL & LACE inspiration. And don't forget to link up your PEARL & LACE Birthday Card by Thursday, May 26th at 6 PM MST to be eligible for the Super Sundae Badge and by Saturday, May 28th at 11:59 PM MST for the challenge.
