Wednesday Sketch Challenge Crazy for Cupcakes

I just love the Stampin' Up! "Crazy for Cupcakes" set. I have sure gotten a lot of use out of it. After making a card with it I think that I should bake cupcakes but I never do!!

This is my card for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge over at SplitCoastStampers. I was fortunate enough once again to have a little time to play with the new sketch!

This card was actually pretty easy to do in spite of all the layers. But as you all know I LOVE playing with layers. Perhaps that is why I enjoy the Wednesday Sketch Challenge SO much!

The decorative paper here is from one of those BIG packs you get at Michael's or Joann's. It's called "Sweet". And it is exactly that. There are a LOT of pretty and fun papers in that pack. I have used some of those papers from that pack on other cards. I think they were birthday cards using the same set!!! LOL

The "Happy Birthday" was done on the computer and punched out. I did find a piece of Pink Pirouette paper and used it on the background of the card. I ran it through the Cuttlebug "Dotted Swiss" folder. That has to be one of my favorite folders.

After I stamped the cupcakes and colored them in I noticed that they looked a little blah. SO I punched it up by adding some crystal lacquer and glitter to the cherries and just crystal lacquer to the cupcake stand. And then I touched it when I went to pick the card up. Why is it that I do that? I knew I put that wet stuff on the card. I set it aside to dry in a spot that it wouldn't be touch ed by anything and then I proceed to pick it up right on the wet spots!!! Is it just me that does stuff like that almost EVERY time??? LOL

And now I have a birthday card ready (early) for a friend of mine. And if I can get it in the mail on time it will be the first time in a long time that she doesn't get it late!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
