For this week's FS, VDM or Vicki I chose this card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1660134 Vicki, you have a delightful gallery with lots of inspiration to chose from! Congratulations! I kept the same sketch but changed the second panel. I tried casing exactly but since this dp has sponging on the edges, it just didn't look right. I ended up sponging all edges, added brads & dazzling diamonds to the candle's flame and ribbon. The second panel is popped up and the bottom of the third panel. Thanks for stopping by! ~Roberta

Roberta, this is a great masculine birthday card.. I really like that you have placed a panel behind the image layer, it adds so much to the overall appearance. I wish I had done that on my card.. I like the way you have turned the card and the tilt that you have used. The dp looks so good and the sponging around the edges really brings out the marvelous colors here... I have become quite partial to the green shades as of late and this really ranks up there for me. Thank you so much, I appreciate all the time you devoted to this and love that you wanted to make this a very special time for me. All of this is more than I ever expected... You all have really touched my heart in a way that I can't find the words to express. This is the best family ever.....
