Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going great! Nick went back to school with a little bit of the allergies hanging on but seemed to do just fine. It really helps when the wind machine is turned off - lol! The news last night had said that we were in for a bad allergy season this year. Oh joy!
Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches. This is a newer sketch challenge blog (this is their 4th challenge). I discovered them while browsing different blogs. Their sketches are very simple in design and I find that I can even use their older sketches! Very fun! Anyway, I used my Create a Cupcake stamp set and coordinating Cupcake Builder punch for this card. I stamped the cupcake bottom in Baja Breeze and the cupcake top in So Saffron onto scrap pieces of Whisper White and punched them out. These were popped up onto a 1 3/4" circle of Whisper White which was adhered to a circle that was die cut from So Saffron using the circles #2 die and then adhered to a 2 3/8" scallop circle of Poppy Parade. My card base is Whisper White. I added a strip of designer paper from the Just Add Cake paper pack and flagged one end. I popped up the circle element onto the card. Then I stamped the greeting in Poppy Parade onto a strip of Whisper White and flagged both ends of this before popping it up onto the card. My final touch was to punch a flower from Poppy Parade using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and add a rhinestone. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
