Seize the Birthday with something sweet!

Does this cake look sweet enough for ya'll?  A sweet friend, Birgit, sent me a lovely birthday card and inside was this stamped image!  I do believe it is a Concord and 9th stamp called Happy Day!  Oh I was so happy to see this in the card and knew it would come in handy for an STB card!  And sure enough today is the day!  I had colored it up with my prisma pencils and do you see the shiny layer of icing oozing out the sides?  That is glossy accents!
My sentiment is from a PTI set called Just Desserts and I curved the sentiment to match the plate the cake is sitting on!  Just a fun little twist to the normal straight stamped sentiment!
 
So are you ready to get your birthday card made and enter it here at Seize the Birthday?
Please join us, we look forward to seeing your birthday card in the gallery!!

Heart Hugs, friends!
