DivaSC83 Happy Birthday!

If you are coming from the Utah Divas site or from Carol's - make sure you go back and pester her - it's her birthday!

Happy Birthday, Carol! 

The additional option (theme) for our sketch today is "cupcakes" so I guess she wanted to make sure we didn't forget ;) Kidding!

Some project notes:
  • The Designer Series Paper (Tall Tales) dictated our colors: Brilliant Blue*, Rose Red, Old Olive, So Saffron.
  • The main image is stamped with StazOn onto watercolor paper, allowing for watercoloring without blurry lines or pilled up card stock. 
  • An Aqua Painter makes it easy to pick up ink from the lid of your ink pads and color in an image. This lovely tower of cupcakes is from Crazy for Cupcakes. That same set also includes one jumbo Sam's Warehouse sized cupcake. I was going for quantity....lol
  • Can't fit your sentiment under the image? Cut it apart and add it where-ever you want!
  • The grid lines on the Mat Pack were useful in helping to place the brads. I knew I couldn't eyeball this one!  The brads themselves are Brilliant Blue to match the card stock and printed paper; they are part of the Bold Brights collection of brads. See note below*

*Brilliant Blue is one of our retiring colors. Any item with this color (ink, paper, embellishments) will retire and are only available while supplies last.
