Good Afternoon to you all!
I can't believe it's been this long since I've blogged. Time just flies.
I finally stole some time away in my stamp room today. I have a deadline for making my great-niece a 1st birthday card. She turns one on July 14. I need to wrap her gifts and then mail them with this card to get to TN by July 14.
I decided that I needed some motivation so I looked through some sketch challenges coming up. I knew that I would use the CTMH stamp/die set called "Sweet Birthday" so I looked for a sketch that would work with the cupcake image. I decided that the sketch for the Sketch-N-Scrap Challenge blog was perfect for it. I am following their Card Sketch #101.
You can find the sketch here.
This is what it looks like.
I pretty much stuck to the sketch. I used all CTMH products unless otherwise noted. The designer paper is from the Little Dreamer Collection plus Lagoon cardstock for the die cut sentiment. The stamp/die set used is mentioned above called "Sweet Birthday". I stamped with black Momento ink and colored with ShinHan markers(BG61, B68, P282, and YR24) and Copic markers(R32 and Y11). The sentiment "happy birthday" dies are from Little B and the "number 1" die is from Sizzix. I added some Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen to the cupcake top and the candle flame. It is hard to see in my picture - sorry. Lastly, I added 3 sequins for a bit of fun. And there you have it! I sure hope she has a wonderful birthday. Thanks for stopping by!
