:: Celebrating my 100th Post with Birthday Sundaes Challenge #24! ::

How appropriate that my 100th blog post is having created a card for a Birthday Sundaes challenge!

This week Kristie sent the design team this fun photo below:

The Birthday Sundaes guest designer for this week is Theresa,
who created a really sweet card for our challenge! 
Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT blogs as well!
(DT list on side bar)

Some of the materials I used for my challenge card this week comes from:

Basic Grey's Out of Print collection ('Newsflash', 'Publication'),
Hopscotch collection ('Playground')

Clear Dollar Stamps 'Yummy Cupcake' digital image
(designed by Laurie Wilson of Doodle Pantry)

Hero Arts 4x6 "Wonderful Birthday" Clear Stamp set


Copic markers

The Twinery ('Pink Sorbet', 'Caribbean', and 'Lemondrop' twine)

Ranger Stickles ("Stardust")

Ranger Liquid Pearls ("Petal Pink", "Lemon", "Baby Blue")

I actually created a different version of the card above before creating the one above to realize that it really didn't follow the inspiration photo...!!!  Imagine my reaction when I did realize!  Here it is anyway so you can see what I originally created!



Think I was just having one of those moments!

 
Thanks for stopping by!

The way you raised the tops of the cupcakes gives a nice feel of demension to the card. I love the flags coming out of the tops. Once again great work. I look forward to seeing everyone of your post each week.
