Turning 8 is Great (a sketch challenge with DCD)

Welcome one and all to a new challenge with Die Cuttin' Divas.  The first Tuesday of the month means....a sketch challenge!!  I love sketches and lately I love using them to make cards for my pocket pages spreads.
I took a very wide and free approach to the sketch. staying away from the heart embellishments and not using an oval around my cake.
But.. when I gathered up cards for my Project Life spread  I knew I could create a fun display mixing my die-cuts and my cards.
See the cake design on the card? What if you create the layers of the card with other cards and make you die cut a cake so the candles go on top?  It totally blew me away when it got it to work just right and it was her 8th birthday so I covered up a few of the candles and - so happy with this.
The overall page turned out pretty good and I had a blast with the sketch. Hope you will too at Die Cuttin' Divas.
