Megan's first birthday

This is the 1st birthday card I made for my daughter Megan who was 1 yesterday. I can't believe she's a year old already. Time has just flown by.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
Passion for ProMarkers blog challenge. The theme is special birthday
I love ProMarkers blog challenge. The theme is pins and charms.


The main image is from Fizzy Moon called Birthday Treats. I stamped the image three times onto smooth white card and coloured it in with ProMarkers. I cut section from each image and layered them up with foam pads. I added Glossy Accents to the buttons and Stickes to the cake and hat.

I cut squares of pink card and patterned paper for the background. I also cut a number 1 from the pink card using a Craftwork Card template. I also added the long greeting with ribbon.

Before adding the square to the card I attached a strip of ribbon across the top right corner. Onto this I attached a charm and ribbon bow. To finish the card I added my favourite faux stitching, white flowers and gems.

And finally this is the cake I made. It's a two tier sponge cake. I was very pleased with the finished cake. It was hard work though. It tasted yummy!

Hi there Georgina and what a gorgeous special birthday card for your daughter's first birthday.
I have made virtually every birthday cake for my two over the years - and they come to expect it too and used to put in requests what they wanted their cake to look like. You have been warned!!! LOL. Looks scrummy too - and matches the card as well. I am sure the birthday celebrations went well.
Thanks for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers this week and good luck.
Tine :)
