Colorful Happy Birthday Card


Today I have a card to share with you- I'm in need of a few birthday cards (I'm actually behind on sending them- like January behind!) so I'll be making some more this week! I challenged myself to use Kelly's sketch from Day 1 of her Sketchbook 3 Course to make this... I don't know how well you can see the sketch in my card but I can definitely say that it inspired me!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Create a Cupcake by Stampin' Up!
Ink: StazOn, Basic Grey, Going Grey, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rose Red, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Pretty in Pink, and Daffodil Delight all by Stampin' Up!
Paper: Crumb Cake, Dafodil Delight, watercolor paper, and First Edition DSP by Stampin' Up!; other patterned papers and cardstock by Bazzill
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Decorative Label Punch, Photo Corner punch, Melon Mambo polkadot grosgrain ribbon, Subtles buttons, Linen Tread, Scallop Edge punch, paper piercer and Crystal Effects all by Stampin' Up!

My little cupcakes are watercolored and then topped with lots of Dazzling Diamonds for some sparkle. I love all the colors in this one!

I hope you are all enjoying your week! It's a busy one for me but luckily I'm finding a little down time here and there to create- it makes even the busiest days a little less stressful.

Thanks for stopping by today!
