A Whole Lotta Challenges!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!! I have been MIA the past few days! Work and real life have been kicking my butt, and I have been going to bed before 9:00...that is SO not normal for me!!!

Since I haven't stamped in two days (the horrors!!), this card is a combination of quite a few challenges!! It is for Tuesday's Color Challenge, CC214, Bordering Saffron Pirouette, Wednesday's Sketch Challenge, SC224, Yesterday's Ways To Use It Challenge, WT214 Framed, and today's Limited Supply Challenge, LSC216, I "wheely" like stamping!! Whew!!

So, for my card, I started with Cupcake Mix & Match by There She Goes. I stamped my cake and cake stand onto Choice White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black (I stamped the cake twice). I ran the entire panel through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I then took my second cake and colored it with Copic Markers, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals.

My Bordering Blue and So Saffron panels were also run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Folder, as was my sentiment panel, which is Label 1 from Lots of Tags by SU!/Sizzix.

I created a frame (hence, WT214) with my paper piercing tool and template all around my focal panel. To comply with today's Limited Supply Challenge, I used the Whimsical Blossoms Wheel (although I couldn't find the handle so I had to just roll it along the paper...giggle!!) with Pretty In Pink ink onto my Pink Pirouette Panel, and I only used one image (the cake), one sentiment (Happy Birthday from Cupcake Mix & Match by There She Goes) and for my one embellishment, I used brads!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
