DivaSC17 Cupcake Birthday Card


Good Morning, all! Today is Saturday (Valentines Day for all you love birds out there) and it's time to see what Alicia at UDI has chosen as our layout challenge. This one was fairly simple, not a whole lotta layers or extra embellishments on this one. Leaves more room to play with stamps!
For this one I chose the bold color Pixie Pink for the background of the card, bashful blue for the center portion and basic black for the matting. I love how the black makes the other colors pop! The main image (from Crazy for Cupcakes) was stamped in versamark then I added black embossing powder and heat set it. I decided to simply use my markers to color in the image - pixie pink for the candle, bashful blue for the paper wrapper and barely banana for the yummy frosting. When I was done I felt like it needed a little sparkle, so the candle's flame, the sprinkles and the edges of the frosting are slightly enhanced with stickles. (I didn't get it as neat as I wanted so I'm not going to bore you with a close-up shot! lol) The four corners of the card contain a little rhinestone singles. (You would be able to see the two on the bottom corners when the card is laying flat.)
I hope you enjoy my take on the card but be sure to stop by the UDI link above and check out what our other Diva Sketch ladies have done with it. And, by all means, play along! Share with us by linking to this post, the one at UDI, or include the DIVASC17 as your keyword in your splitcoast gallery. Have a great weekend!
