Card from a kit - a fun birthday cake, a sanded background and a layered greeting

Another card kit from my May class!  I love how this one turned out!!  The birthday cake is a digital image from Melonheadz which I sized and laser printed before trimming it out of the sheet using an oval Nestibilities die.  I found a layer just a bit larger in my stash and sponged it a bit to get it to coordinate with my background.  The background is coloured cardstock which was colour printed, stencilled and stamped before I embossed it with a swirl oval embossing folder.  I sanded it to reveal the original colour of the cardstock and it also gives it a really velvety smooth texture as well.  I mounted the background to a green card front, watercoloured the cake and created my focal element by layering the two ovals.  I used 3D foam tape to mount it to my card front.  I layered a laser printed greeting and mounted it onto a punched label (SU) in green before mounting in over the oval focal element using double sided tape on the left and 3D foam tape on the right.  Really like this one!!!               Therese
