celebrating. . . .

birthdays today for a few challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Seize the Birthday challenge

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge


Here is the sketch:





Here is my card:



As you can see, my card is loosely based on the sketch.  Sometimes I have a hard time following one exactly.  :) 

I used Basic Grey's Paper Cottage 6 x 6 pad for this card.  The stamps are from Impression Obsession.  Portions of the cupcake were paper pieced. 

Thanks for stopping by.
