SC216 - Birthday Cupcakes

Its a dreary rainy day here today with more snow coming in starting tonight, personally I'm sick of winter and am so ready for spring. My card for today is for the sketch challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers, when I first looked at the sketch I wasn't so sure about whether or not I like it but after using the sketch for my card I think it definitely gives a new layout and look. I guess that's what the challenges are suppose to do for you, have you try something you normally would try. The two half circles in the back ground were cut out with the largest Nestabilities circles from the large and small circle die sets and then cut in half (does that make sense?).

I colored the cupcakes with my Copics then added Dazzling Diamonds to the frosting and Crystal Effects to the cherries.
Supplies: Crazy for Cupcakes, Think Happy Thoughts, Love You Much designer paper, Ribbon, Nesties, Copics, Circle punches, Scallop Edge punch, Piercer w/mat, Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects, Pop dots. Colors: Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White.

Wow were you fast on getting your take of this sketch done. I've gotta admit, I'm intimidated by those arches.

Hey did you get my package in the mail yet? I mailed it late last week.

You did a great job with this sketch. The background and colors remind me of the inside of a fancy bakery shop with the cupcakes in the window.

This is a GREAT card but I agree with Kimmie...I'm scared to death of those half circles! haha
We had 70 degree weather here last week and I really thought spring was around the corner..but now we're back in the 40s! I'm with you--ready for spring and we haven't even had any snow!!!!
