Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

Sydney has decided to take an extra long nap this afternoon, which means I had time to squeeze in one more card for today!  Woo hoo!  I bought this set, Sketched Birthday before Sydney was born with the delusion that I would have time to stamp after she came... HAHAHAHAHAHA!  Between her and the studio... I have just now begun to find a balance and carve out time to stamp.  So, this set has barely been used.  I think I've used it once since I got it 2 years ago.  It just retired (of course), but I love it still!

I had seen so many cute cards floating around with the balloons from this set, so I knew I wanted to incorporate those.  I went into my card sketch board in Pinterest and found one that I followed, kind of.  The colors are from this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge which is to use Strawberry Slush (retired), So Saffron, and Soft Suede.  I promise there is Soft Suede on my card... just not very much.  I colored the frosting on the cupcake with it.  I just wanted to keep this card nice and bright.  I experimented with putting a layer behind the polka dots of Soft Suede, but it just darkened it too much for me.

Supplies List:
Paper: Whisper White, Strawberry Slush DP (retired), So Saffron, Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Sketched Birthday
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: So Saffron Marker, Strawberry Slush Marker, Soft Suede Marker, Scallop Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
