Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hello Everyone,
Today I have the honor to be a Surprise Guest Designer at Seize the Birthday! I am super excited to join this talented group of designers for the months of October and November!
Thanks again Nancy for having me, I am thrilled!
 Be sure to come join in the fun, we would love to see your creations!
Today's Challenge:  Anything Goes Birthday
Here is my project for the challenge:
I found this darling 3D cake at the Silhouette Store and couldn't wait to create it~My Granddaughter, Arya will be turning 5 real soon and I thought this would be a fun decoration at her party. I used papers from DCWV "The Birthday Wishes" stack. So many FUN papers in this stack.
After cutting all the pieces on my Cameo, I then assembled it. I added a flickering battery tea light, a pretty pink bow with ribbon from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces. I finished with a banner created with Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies 2 and the sentiment is stamped with the Cake Day stamp set.
The matching card is created with JB Rectangle Dies 1 for the base and the base layer with the Scallop Rectangle Dies 2. I then layered a tag created with JB Luggage Tag Dies. I embossed it with the Spots and Dots folder. The yummy cake is stamped with the JB Cake Day stamp set and colored with copics, wink of stella and a layer of Glossy Accents,  The balloons are tied on with twine from my stash and the balloons are from JB Birthday Dies. The sentiment is stamped with Cake Day onto a Mini Tag Dies 2.
Be sure to stop over at Seize the Birthday and check out what the amazing DT has created for you and then come back and join in the challenge~we'd love to see what you create!
