Welcome, blog friends! Thanks for stopping by! I am excited to present our FIFTIETH sketch and product challenge to you today! :) The focus is on string, so pull out your favorite threads and strings, and play along with us!
My card features one of my FAVORITE new stamp sets. It's Bake Me a Cake from Lawn Fawn. A definite must-have, in my opinion...there are so many options!! I chose a white cardstock base with patterned paper layers from the Cosmo Cricket Delovely paper pad. The cupcakes from the Bake Me a Cake stamp set were stamped in black ink, and the frostings were paper pieced using the same patterned papers. Each cupcake is topped with a Hot Pink Rhinestone "cherry". I colored the bottoms of the cakes using my Koh-i-noor pencils. The "happy birthday" sentiment is from the same stamp set as well, but I inked it one word at a time so that the words would be right next to each other instead of on top of one another. I wrapped a length of black string around the card and tied it through a Calypso Mento Pastel Prima flower and a PTI button before tying a bow.
