Happy Birthday!

Good afternoon and almost evening friends! I'm in denial that it is 4:21 as I type this...wow, today has flown by! I wanted to share a fun little birthday card, my supply of birthday wishes is non existant, so I'm got a fire under me to get a little stock pile!

I saw the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, #56 and laughed, as I had just written a sketch just like this in my book! So, here is my take on the challenge, you can find the orginal sketch here.
I started by making a white card base, then a layer of chocolate chip paper. I used some retired SU paper, the upper right and lower left pieces. Then a new slice of heaven, the polka dots are from the new Letterpress line from American Crafts. I tied a nice bow around the center of the card, and added a little button.

I stamped my little cupcake and sentiment, which are from the Lizzie Anne Sixlet set, Banner Birthday. I stamped the cupcake twice, once onto my white paper, then again on my polka dot paper so I could paper piece the cupcake paper-to match perfectly! I colored the frosting in with a pink copic, then added some pink sparky fluff. I also colored the candle with a green copic. I mounted the cupcake onto some chocolate chip cardstock and then mounted that to my card with dimensional foam.

Hope you're having a great one! My kids go back to school tomorrow, so I think we'll get back into the groove tomorrow! It's amazing how a few days break from school throws us for some crazy days! Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!
