Hello Friends, I know I have been a hit or miss all summer long but the truth is, I sit at my desk for hours and have every intention of creating some fabulous to share with you all but I end up blog hopping and copying and pasting and ya know, just searching high and low for that one project that will catch my eye. Well, I needed a Birthday card for my sons Nana and I really really love this lady. She has been the best grandma to my son so I wanted to make her something special. Well, I found this sketch challenge with a twist at "The Sweet Stop" and knew that I wanted to use that sketch to create something fab.
So, the twist was to use die cuts or punches of which, I did. The cup cake is a punch from Stampin Up! and the die cuts are scallop oval nestabilities. I also ised a circle punch to make the half circles, or scallops at the bottom of the striped piece. All of the designer paper is from My Minds Eye, Stella Rose. The card stock is all from Stampin Up! Whisper White and tempting turquoise. the inks that I used on the punched cupcake is Regal Rose and Tempting turquoise. I also added some Sakura Crystal Lacquer on the top of the cup cake and added a cherry on top. The Happy Birthday is from CTMH "For every occasion"
The really special part of the card that I just love is I added micro beads to the center, Can you see em? I haven't taken out my micro beads out in so long, I am just tickled to be able to use them on this special card. So, what do you think? Do you like it? I just think it is adorable and hope that Nana likes it as well!!!
Hopefully, I will be back real soon to share some more goodies with you.
