Today I'm taking a little break from Easter cards so that I can play along in this week's Birthday themed Farm Fresh Challenge over at TGF. My card is actually 100% inspired by the genius altering that my bloggin' buddy Carisa did to SSC Love Peppermint Bean. As soon as I saw Carisa's card I was just itchin' to try my hand at turning Peppermint's candy hat into a cake hat too. I'm a big fan of the cutie TGF Beans so I was super excited when this little gal arrived in my mailbox last month. I didn't get around to using her for a Valentine though and I was resigned to the idea of having to wait 'til Christmas to get her on a card. Until I saw what Carisa came up with... talk about creative!
Because I already had this Bean stamped up I decided to pull out my light box and trace a the peppermint into a blank cake shape on a separate piece of cardstock. Because the cake was a separate image and I had to glue it on, I decided to add another layer with the little doily between her and the cake. The paper scraps I pulled are old Bella Blvd which had a lot of fun colors going on. So of course Peppermint had to have a colorful outfit to match. :)
Alrighty, time to get ready for work.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
