Today's birthday card uses the fun sketch from this week's sketch challenge 166 over at Stamping 411. I flipped the sketch on it's side to allow for my cupcake tower but what a fun sketch either way you do it!! I wanted to add a bow over my image but I was having some issues with the tails of the bow covering up the sentiment so instead I made this little flat bow and added some "tails" to the sides of it. Then I jazzed it up with a few small rhinestones. LOVE the way it turned out.....especially considering the collection of small little bows I had to go through to get this one :)
Materials used (all SU unless noted otherwise): crazy for cupcakes; night of navy, pretty in pink, certainly celery cs; stamper's select white (PTI); tuxedo black (memento); copics; crystal effects; nestabilities (spellbinders); scallop edge sizzix die; rhinestones; celery ribbon; lattice embossing folder
We had SUCH a great time at Yo Gabba Gabba Live yesterday!!! It was truly a FUN party!!!! I think the little lady was a little overwhelmed that all her "friends" were there dancing and singing...she sat kind of shell shocked for most of the show. The show was about an hour of pure preschool fun :) Such a great way to end our summer! And we finally have some warmer weather back here in NJ so we've got a few more days to soak up the sun here on the east coast before we head out to CA.
I trust that you had a great weekend as well. Can you believe it was the last one of August?!?! Wow, did this summer fly by or what?!?! Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Hope you have a wonderful day :)
