Sneak Peeks Day Five: It's My Birthday

Hello! Here's the fifth and final C.C. Designs set being released at midnight (12:01 Friday morning to be exact) -- It's My Birthday. All your favorite C.C. Designs characters are back for this one -- Lucky, Lulu, and of course this adorable monkey! I decided to use yesterday's Sketch Challenge at SCS for this card -- the long panel is perfect for this image. I used my Cuttlebug and Spots & Dots folder to make the background, then I applied White Craft ink DTP to make the embossing pop. I colored the monkey with Copics. I stamped the balloon on a solid piece of the Piggy Tales paper, and I popped it up on a dimensional. The cupcake is a separate image -- I cut it out and put it under a slit I cut around his hand (thanks, Michele, for that idea!). I added Cotton Candy stickles to the icing. The sentiment is cut in two pieces so I could make the little tags.

I have a busy day today, but I'm hoping to play with this set some more! The images are just too cute! Be sure to stop by the All That Scraps Blog to see more Design Team samples -- plus you can win some great giveaways! :)
