Happy Birthday Matilda

I am loving all the awesome new Cosmo Cricket 6x6 Mini Decks! The Halloween prints in Matilda are completely adorable, and I can't wait to cut into them, but for today, I've used some of the non-Halloween-specific patterns to create a birthday card. The cake, cupcake, sentiment, and star accents are all from Birthday Bash by Verve. I colored the image with Copics and accented with clear glitter. The focal panel is cut with the new Lacey Circles Nestabilities (I'm giving these things a real workout!). I added some hand-stitching around the circle panels and the background layer as well. The sentiment tag also includes a circle frame stamp from Happy Hello (another thing that's getting quite the workout - I think I've used that little circle on almost all of my Verve projects lately!).

The layout is from Julee's Mojo 155 sketch.

It's a contest this week, too, which means if you play along and link your creation to the Mojo Monday blog, you have a chance to win a Verve set of your choice. Do you know I acquired my very first Verve stamps by winning a Mojo contest? I bet it was two and half years ago at least, and oh, how my collection has grown!

Here's a little detail shot:
