SSSC120/CTD144 - Create a Cupcake

Well hello there, thanks for dropping in!  I hope you're enjoying your weekend.  Here in Michigan we've had a cool rainy spring and so many of us have been wishing for some warmer weather...well we got it yesterday.  I was almost 90 degrees and muggy yuck, I'm hoping today is a little cooler since I have flowers to plant.

Today is Sunday and time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch #120.  For my card I created a CAS (clean & simple) birthday card using the SU stamp set Create a Cupcake and the fun colors from The Color Throwdown #144. 
I started out with a melon mambo card base, then a pumpkin pie layer that was embossed using my perfect polka dot embossing folder.  Then I added four punched out circles of retired SU designer paper.  The cupcake image was stamped on a white 2 3/4" square piece of card stock and I added a melon mambo mat.  Across the lower front of my card I used a scallop border piece, a strip of melon mambo and added my ribbon and bow.

To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!

I missed commenting last week, but I'm glad I made it back by because I wanted to tell you how much I liked this card! I NEVER would have put these colors together, but somehow you managed to pull it off and it looks great!!
