Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

Here is my card for the Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. This one was fun. I did find it to be quite a challenge because of those two boxes 3-a & 3-b. They threw me for a while. I wasn't sure if I wanted to have the same image in each box or if I wanted to mix it up with words and an image or just decorative paper and an image. Well, after some thought this is what I came up with. Two different images and one of the images has wording!! Getting the best of both worlds here!!!

The adorable background paper is some decorative paper I had gotten at Michael's in one of those tablet things. It's a glitter page collection. I thought these flowers looked festive and were perfect for this theme.

When I was looking through my stamps I realized there are not very many word stamps that are vertical so that made that task a bit more difficult for me. But I managed to stick with the words in the set and didn't have to use the computer this time!!! Shocker, I know!!! LOL

The cupcake and balloon are layered and have Dimensionals under them. The cupcake has three layers. The candle flame also has three layers.

I added some Dazzling Diamonds to help the stamped images pop more. For the sprinkles on the cupcake I added some Dazzling Diamonds and I took a 1/8" paper punch and punched out a few dots and glued them in place. It was just what the cupcake top needed!!!

Now I get to wear glitter for a day or so. Probably longer if I have to move the card around in my workroom until I find a place to display it!!! Gotta LOVE wearing that stuff!!! LOL

Thanks SO much for stopping by,
