Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Jen del Muro (I{heart}2stamp) has an awesome sketch challenge on her blog this weekend, so I thought I'd play along.
I pulled out my Hey There Cupcake set, which available only at Eclectic Paperie and matched it up with some delicious Basic Grey paper called... are you ready? CUPCAKE! It was meant to be!

The hardest part about this layout is getting the strips to match in size and distance apart. I'm a bit anal about those things. Once I got everything measured and cut, I sewed around the strips with my sewing machine (yup, sometimes I set the tracing wheel aside and actually move over to the machine lol).

After I stamped the cupcake frosting, I used a Gelly Roll stardust pen to add some shimmer and then cut it out. I used foam tape to layer it on the scallop circle, which is blinged out with glitter on the edges.

Super fun card to make! Have you played in any challenges yet? They are FUN!
