Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

I REALLY thought this Sketch Challenge was a tough one. It was those two half circles that really threw me off. For me it was REALLY stepping outside the box!!!

I thought I'd make a birthday card because I can always use birthday cards!!!! Who can't??? I had gotten a package of decorative paper from Joann's called "Sweets." It's full of fun glittery papers!!! I just couldn't help myself and it was half off so........ enough said???? LOL

I used the Stampin' Up! set "Crazy for Cupcakes." I thought it would go so cute with the strawberries on the cupcakes. And what was really fun was the colors went well with the Stampin' Up! papers!!!! Such a deal, huh???

For the cupcakes I used a blender pen and the Riding Hood Red ink pad for the cupcakes. The stand was colored in with the blender pen and Close to Cocoa ink. I added a bit of Certainly Celery under the stand area.

The scallop was fun to do. I used the large scallop in the Sizzix die cut. Then I put that scallop in another Sizzix die that had circles. I lined the circle up inside the scallop as much as I could and cut it out. Then I snipped on the inside of the scallop and straightened it out. Then I cut off pieces to fit on the quarter half circles in the sketch. It was the easiest time I ever had making a scallop.

The rest of the components of this card are from that single sheet of decorative paper. Right down to that cute scallop at the bottom that I cut out by hand following their lines. Good thing I didn't make the card the opposite direction, it was grueling enough cutting that much of it!!! LOL

Much to my surprise I can actually say that I enjoyed this sketch!!! If you have time give this sketch a try too!!

Thank you for visiting today,
