Celebrate With Cake


Hi there!  I'm going way out of my CAS comfort zone with today's layered card.  I was inspired by both the pink in the photo and the sketch over at the Fusion challenge.  I'm joining the Seize the Birthday Sweet Treats challenge thanks to my sweet little cupcake.  The patterned paper allows me to play along with the current Virginia's View challenge.  And finally, because almost everything on this card is Never Before Used Schtuff I'm joining Darnell's 2nd NBUS challenge.  This particular Avery Elle sentiment was the whole reason I bought the set but, of course, hadn't used it yet.  The October Afternoon paper pad had to be dusted off before I cracked it open and The Craft's Meow cupcake is seeing ink for the first time.  I love how the flowers on the paper almost match the flower on the cupcake.  So perfect!

Supplies Used
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Patterned PAper:  (Farm Girl 8x8) October Afternoon
Stamps:  (Cupcake & swirl from Sweet Birthday) The Craft's Meow, (Sentiment from Cake & Candles) Avery Elle
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Red Royal) Hero Arts
Die:  (Nesties Classic Scalloped Squares Large) Spellbinders
Markers:  (R17, R20, R29, YG95) Copic
