Happy Birthday with Sprinkles on top! - {The Challenge #21}

 Hello friends!  The Challenge #21 is up and has a fun new sketch and color pallet for all of us to create with.  We hope you'll join the design team and play along.
For my card I used only the sketch (that's just one of the things that I like about this challenge, you can use just the sketch or just the colors or both).  I needed a few birthday cards so I pulled out my Papertrey Ink stamp sets Shakers & SprinklesCupcake Collection and Birthday Style.
I started out with a white card base, then stamped the top and bottom portion of a piece of raspberry fizz card stock with the banners from the Birthday Style set.  Next I added a piece of real red card stock and my hawaiian shores banner and on top of that my die cut ovals with the mat cut from aqua mist.  The die cut word Sprinkles was cut from a piece of silver metallic paper and tucked under that is my die cut cupcake with hearts and sprinkles glued on.

      Merry - {SSSC249}

      Hi there friends!  It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
       For my card I used the Mama Elephant stamp sets Arctic Penguins and Jolly and Merry.  A few details: I embossed the red panel using a polka dot embossing folder.  I added some glitter to the Santa hat on the last penguin and silver glitter pen to their skates and some glossy accents to their eyes and beaks.  Two of the little packages have some white gel pen detail to them and all of the penguins were colored with Copic markers.

      Hope you're having a great day!

      Jolly - {SSSC248}

       Hi there and good morning!  It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
      For my card I used the Mama Elephant stamp sets Arctic Penguins and Jolly and Merry (I made a batch of cards using these sets, I love these cute penguins).  A few details: After stamping the Jolly once in brocade blue, I stamped off and stamped it again just slightly off to give a shadowed look.  I used a silver glitter pen on the penguins hats and skates and within the letters of Holidays sentiment and I added some white pen to the little snowflakes to give them some pop.
