Does This Mean You're A Grownup Now?

Hi everyone!!! Happy Saturday!!!

I had some fun stampy time today, so I decided to FINALLY participate in a challenge over at The Cats Pajamas! I have wanted to for ages so I am excited that I finally played along!!!

This week's challenge is a super fab inspiration pic that you can see on this post. I LOVE the colors in this picture, so I pulled out some yummy papers from Thrift Shop by October Afternoon and got to work!

For my card, I used Smells Like Cake, an AWESOME set that I borrowed from my friend Ann (thanks girl!!). I have a HUGE wish list at The Cats Pajamas, and this set is totally on it!!!

I stamped the penguins in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar Cream and colored the entire image with Copic Markers. The star on top of the cupcake has a coat of Martha Stewart glitter (love that stuff!). I LOVE the sentiment, "Does this mean you're a grownup now?", and I cut it out and embossed it, as well as the focal image, with Circle Nestabilities and sponged both with Memento Canteloupe & Memento Tangelo.

I finished off my card with two American Crafts black brads and opted to NOT use any ribbon. The layout is today's sketch at The Sweet Stop, SSS57, and I just added the sentiment panel.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
