make a wish!

I made this card for a co-worker of mine. I knew that I was going to make this for her after spotting Elena's of The Stamping Shac version. Dang, that girl can mask...you know me and my bling, I did that to help the transition of the police and the cake...if you check out Elena's version, hers is perfection. I had already made a mistake on an earlier version on my precious Fabriano...I couldn't bear the thought of another one going into the scrap dungeon. Here's the funny thing, the birthday girl said it would have been even better if the police dude didn't have a shirt on {good grief....that would mean hand drawing...etc...I stamp for petey sakes because I can't draw...rolling my eyes!}. The Police hat and shirt are paper pieced...I learned that from my earlier version...coloring in with copics just wasn't cutting it...I had to resort to fussy cutting. I finished off the cake with my signo white gel pen...all the images are ala A Muse.
