SSSC124 - Celebrate Today

Happy 4th of July weekend to everyone in the states!  Today is Sunday which means it's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!

The card that I have for today is a birthday card for my mom who's birthday is July 5th.  Some times I create birthday cards for my mom that are flowery and pretty but today I went with the whole patriotic look and hope she likes it.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Cupcake Collection along with the coordinating dies, some red white and blue designer paper that I've had in my stash forever, ribbon, an SU star punch and a button with red white bakers twine.
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! 

Be sure to visit each of the Sweet Sunday Stampers below for more samples using this week’s sketch!

Awww! LOVE that you did a Patriotic Cupcake! Why don't I ever think of things like that? LOVE thinking and using stamp sets "outside the box" - especially when the end result is this awesome!
