Happy Birthday to You!

stampin up demonstrator, crazy for cupcakes, stampin' up, birthday, cards, handmade Wooo Hoo... it's FRIDAY! I hope you have a lovely day!

I made this card for two different challenges from earlier in the week:

#1 - Pals Paper Arts challenge which is a color challenge this week: Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, and Melon Mambo

#2 - Mercy's Tuesday Sketch

I pulled out my good old trusty Crazy for Cupcakes (#111618) for this challenge. I flipped the sketch to make it work for the image I wanted to use.

The image is stamped on Watercolor Paper and colored with Stampin' Write Markers.

The various dp panels are from the new Hostess Prints Pack (free with a $150 purchase), with the exception of the Melon Mambo piece which is from the retired Good Neighbors dp pack.

Everything else is pretty self explanatory! Here are the full details on the products I used. Remember, you can purchase them all (as long as they are current) in my online store by clicking HERE!
