Wednesday Sketch ChallengeCreate a Cupcake

I had to take a break from wrapping Christmas presents to play with today's Sketch Challenge. I totally forgot about it. I have lost track of the days!!! I was SO into wrapping gifts and I really did want to get them done this afternoon but it didn't happen I have 5 more to wrap and I'll finish them when I get done posting this. Then clean up all the wrapping paper and paper scraps on the floor. Then the fun part of cleaning the house for Christmas begins. I have 2 things left to bake so that will be done too. Maybe I'll do the baking later tonight. I baked last night until almost 1 am. I'm SO far behind on everything this year and I don't like to add stress to my holidays!!
Ok, onto the stress-free card. I LOVE doing the Wednesday Sketch Challenge and really only find it a challenge when they throw in a square card!!! Though I have gotten better at them too! This card is not square. It had a nice quick and simple layout so I could whip the card up quickly. I needed a birthday card so this worked out nicely.

The base of my card is Real Red. The layer #2 is a piece of decorative paper from the "Love Impressions" pack. the #3 layer is a piece of Real Red card stock that was run through the Big Kick using the Dotted Swiss embossing folder. And the #4 layer is a piece of Pirouette Pink card stock. I used the "Create a Cupcake" set and the "Build a Cupcake" punch to put the card together. I did add a piece of black ribbon to the #3 layer. I wanted to use Basic gray ribbon but I was surprised that I didn't have any so I looked it up to order it and there is none to order. Bummer!! So I had to use black.

This was a very fun sketch and if you have time (take a break and make some time for you), play with the sketch too!

I was informed that I had my blogoversary last month and I totally missed it. I began blogging on here in November of 2006!!! WOW, that is a very long time. SO for the Blog Candy I will be combining it with the New Year's Day Blog Candy and make it a VERY nice gift!! SO be sure to pop in on New Year's Day to see what I have for the drawing!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
