Tuesday Morning Sketch #136: Birthday Treats

Stamp:  Inkadinkado image/sentiment.  Cardstock:  Textured black, Papertrey vellum, Paper Studio 'Uptowm Flair' DP.  Ink: Memento black, Copics.  Accessories:  Stardust glitter pen, Nestabilties circle, SU scallop circle punch, Papertrey ribbon.
Here's our fun sketch created by Marie for this week's challenge:
Our sponsor this week is Guylou's Inimitability who creates digi images.  Unfortunately, I realized we had these fun images available to the DT a bit too late to showcase one on my card for this week.

Instead, I created a birthday set to celebrate the birthday of my very talented stamping buddy, Angela (Just Monkeying Around).  Here's the full set:

Featuring a mini birthday cake created from a battery-powered votive:

And of course, chocolate!

Now, if only I'd been organized enough to mail these goodies so they would arrive prior to the reveal on this post!  Oh well, so much for the surprise, but I still hope you have a wonderful birthday, Angela!!
