Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for this week's Sketch For You To Try, SFYTT, which is being sponsored by the AWESOME Greeting Farm!!

I ADORE the stamps and digis from The Greeting Farm, so I was SO excited to create this card today!! I actually flipped the sketch so that it would accomodate the image I used.

I used the digi Cupcake Anya on my card, and she was SO fun to color! I printed her out onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and then sewed the edges for more interest. I added some green Taylors Tiny Twinkles to her hair bows and the bow on her waist.

The patterned paper is all from DeLovely by Cosmo Cricket and the yellow pattern was cut with Circle Nestabilities. The Intense Pink panel was embossed with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder (the only one I reach for these days!), and all the layers were sewn on my sewing machine.

The sentiment, "Happy Birthday Cupcake", along with the cupcake outline stamped behind it, are from For The Love Of Cupcakes from Taylored Expressions and I cut it out and embossed it with Oval Nestabilities and framed it with Intense Pink cut from Scallop Oval Nestabilities. I finished off the card with three Bit's Of Bling down the left side!
