I haven’t made a female birthday card for quite some time now, but yesterday I felt like making something girly girly, so I grabbed one of my new C.C. Designs stamps, “Cupcake Kiki”. I remembered I had some old paper with cupcakes laying around somewhere, so I dug it out from my big box with papers; the colors were perfect for what I had in mind! I colored the image yesterday, but I didn’t manage to finish the card until today, as I spent most of the yesterday watching the Royal Swedish Wedding live from Stockholm. Awww… it was such a beautiful wedding and the groom was so sweet, crying in church, not to mention his lovely speech at the dinner. The bride was absolutely stunning and she looked so happy.
Right; back to the card now. I followed this week’s sketch from Cute Card Thursday. I’m also entering this card into Paper Sundae’s challenge “Pretty as a Princess” – they want to see your girliest girl card, and Ithink it doesn’t get much girlier than this! Also Totally Gorjuss has this week a sweet theme with their challenge “Sugar and Spice”. I decorated the card with plenty of Mulberry roses, which I applied Stickles glitter glue to (Cotton Candy & StarDust). I added a pink gemstone to the cupcake, which I had also applied glitter glue to (Baby Blue). Thus, this card also fits in with Charisma’s challenge “All about bling”. This is only the third card I’m using my sentiment stamp from Stampin’ Up on, but I absolutely adore it. It is by far my favorite sentiment stamp, so I will also enter the card into the Sentimental Sunday Challenge. Finally, I noticed that Meljen’s want to see either fiber, ribbon or lace (good thing I didn’t have a third matching paper, but had to use Raffia instead!).
