The 5-10-15 Event

I've been working on what cards I'd like to do for my 5-10-15 birthday card event, and I've come across 3 that I've cased.  I definatly like this one.
This particular card I cased off of Split coast.  Kim Lampone did it.

This next one I like, but I'm not too sure about the colors yet.  I definitely like the lay out of it, and it was cased from Dawn Griffin.  (LOVE HER!!)  I changed the colors on all of my cards, and either added, things, left things out, or tweaked it in a small way, but the idea was theres.  It's so nice to have a community of such talented people who are so willing to share. 

I used the "In color" Poppy parade.  I've not used my in colors at all.  Maybe that's why I'm not sure if I like the colors on this card.  What do you think?

Last, I'm not sure if I like the colors on this one either.  My husband said he really likes it for a masculine birthday card, but I wonder if there isn't a bit too much brown.

This particular card I cased from...that's right, I saw this cards somewhere and the lay out stuck in my head.  I didnt' think to write it down at the time where I saw it.  I just ran the base of the cupcakes through my crimper, I believe that's the only changes other than color that I made to this card.  If this is off your blog (I'm following a ton) please let me know.  I can't believe I didn't write it down.  I will gladly give credit where credit is due.  Thanks for looking and please let me know what you think.  This is the brain storming time for me, I've still got a couple more images in my head that I'm sure I saw somewhere, when I get it together, I'll be posting the rest of the birthday cards.  So keep checking in to see what the final 5 cards will be for my event.


  1. Great cards! I am sure everyone will love them.

  2. Great cards Yolanda and great changeups on your blog. Very nice looking!

  3. Cute cards and I love the changes to your blog. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  4. These are really cute cards. I like the idea of running the bottom of the cupcakes through the crimper. If you go side to side, it looks like a baking cup! I like the middle card - I'd move the ribbon down a bit so it's above the scalloped edge but at or below the halfway mark on the cupcake layer. Are you serving cupcakes/chocolate at your event? Everything looks yummy.

  5. Terry, of course! :) I'm really excited to have a fun event. Birthday cards just seem fitting for a b'day bash. Cupcakes for sure! I'll take pictures of the event, I'm hoping it's a hit. THanks for your input. I appreciate any words of advice/opinions. So thank you!

  6. Love the cupcakes! Masculine card is my favorite, definitely not too much brown. Great job =)

  7. Great job with the birthday cards! I love the sunny yellow bakery one! So Cute and cheerful! Thanks for following me! I am following you back.
