One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Retro Sketches # 60

Back again with a card for the Retro Sketches...I have a grandson who will be 4 on May day!  This card is for him.
How lucky that the cake from Tremendous Treats:  birthday has 4 candles on it!  I added some rock candy stickles to the icing to add some dimension and yumminess to the cake...looks good enough to eat in real life...well, not really, nothing is better than the REAL THING!  Do you want to play along?  Go HERE to get inspired by Deanna Dean from Kloset Kreations who gave us this great sketch...

Products of Papertrey Ink except where noted
Paper: PTI white, blueberry sky and pattern paper
dies:  nestabilities circles, By the Numbers
stamps:  Think Big Favorites # 12, Tremendous Treats: birthday
copics for coloring cake, twine from the Twinery


  1. Love this card Colleen. I will have to "log" it in my memory and use a similar theme for one of my little ones' birthdays in the future. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. What a classically lovely birthday card, Colleen! It could really be used for any age which makes it a fab inspiration card!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
