Birthday Muse

Here's my card for the current Muse challenge.  I was inspired by Joan's watercolored cake and her pink and gold color scheme.

Happy Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Winnie & Walter
I used the cake from Winnie & Walter's Sugar Rush set for my card.  After heat embossing the image in gold, I used pink watercolors to fill it in.  The "happy birthday" sentiment was heat embossed in gold over a solid pink banner image that I'd stamped after misting the inked stamp (and the extremely irritated dog!) with some water.  I accented the cake with a trio of gold sequins.  The finished watercolored panel was adhered to a white card base over a pair of angled panels--one gold and one rose.

Materials Used:
Sugar Rush stamp set (Winnie and Walter); Delicata Golden Glitz ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Regal Rose cardstock (Stampin' Up!); gold paper (Target); watercolors, watercolor paper, gold sequins (Michaels); gold embossing powder (American Crafts)
