Birthday CAKE!

Square Cards.... thats what the Outlines Team is about today. Any theme, any colors as long as it ends up square! Play along with us each week for a chance to win a gift certificate! Find all the details on the Outlines Blog. The themes are all over but the cards are great this week -- check out what the gals cooked up: Lisa Silver - Kecia Waters - Sue Kment -  Jeanne Strieff - Julie Warner
 Lotsa layers on this one! Of course the layers are made easily with Perfect Layers Rulers. The card finishes to be 5 1/2" square. The papers are all bright and fun for a birthday theme, mixed with white and black layers to help define the layers. I only used a portion of the stamp image. You can see the full image below. You can mix the different panels up so many ways, using all or pieces to create with.

 Here are the Copics I used to color the image. I think the E70's are a good color for "chocolate" and if I'm making a cake (or to be honest...  buying a cake, lol!) it's gonna be chocolate!
I finished off the card by embellishing with a Clear Via Pen and a White Ice Viva Pearl pen. I used the clear pen to outlines the balloons and some parts of the icing on the cake. I used the white pearl pen to do the little dollops of icing in between the cake layers.


  1. Gorgeous love how you have coloured the images and matched the background papers to it. The ribbon just brings the whole design together.

  2. Love the colors and papers! It is very pretty!! Love the frame too!

  3. Wonderful birthday card, Jenny! Love all the layers and papers and your coloring is perfect.

  4. That cake looks so yummy. You've colored it to perfection. And the black die cut and frames look so striking with the other colors.

    Nicely done!

  5. Wow, I love the colorfulness! Great job!
