Happy 40th Birthday, Tosh!

I'm a day late in posting the Splitcoaststampers Sunday challenge. As I took my time with the challenge for I wanted to play with some other stamps first.

Sunday's Featured stamper was Papermoon04 aka Shelly. She is a wonderful friend (even if she lives in Michigan!! lol Yes, she is the one that sent my daughter that jersey she is wearing in the post below!) I picked this card of Shelly's to case. But before I started it, I decided to check out Jeanne S and BadSherry's blogs for their Sunday challenge and to see if I could combine the two! And I could!! It was Jeanne's turn to pick the challenge and she wanted to see cards using only black and white with a splash of color. As it happens, I have been wanting to make a black and white card so this was perfect.

Plus it was perfect as Tosh aka stamps4funinCA turns 40 tomorrow! (yes, I know my card will be late. It's the thought that counts, right??)

I used You Take the Cake by My Favorite Things. I watercolored the dress and cake icing with a black watercolor crayon. The candles were watercolored then I added some yellow stickles to give them a sparkle. The Happy Birthday is embossed in white. If you check out Shelly's card that I cased, you can see the differences right away! But the layout is still the same so I am good to go.

Happy 40th Tosh, I was nice to you!!! :)

I love your take on both challenges, Amber. The little touch of color on the candles is perfect for the JBWW.
