Seize the CUPCAKE

I decided to participate in the SCS Wednesday Sketch Challenge SC235 for the first time and thank goodness this was an easy sketch to do. Of course the one I submitted is a little different as all of the nine spots had to be exactly the same design as far as the shape (see smaller picture), but this one was made for a special friend and she should be getting it soon in the mail. She is crazy about cupcakes and of course remembering I had this stamp that had not been used for quite sometime like 2 years (so many stamps-so little time..LOL!!!). I have mentioned before that I have a stash of papers that I always seem to forget to look at as it is my "Private Reserve" of papers that can no longer be found. I must of had this vellum for at least 4 or 5 years now and luckily remembered it was in this particular stash. LOL!!! I am really big on the Bazzill Cardstock as it is so heavy and I keep every scrap piece that is large enough to do something with as some of the colors are no longer made. I stamped Happy Birthday all over the cardstock before I adhered the vellum to the card to complete my layout. The card is a 5 x 5.5 size and fits really nice in the 6x6 envelopes. Supplies: Stamps: Cupcake-Lockhart Co., Happy Birthday-Studio G; Solid cardstock circles all by Bazzill and the Vellum-no clue as the strip had been cut off with the manufacturer's name; Inks- Stazon Saddle Brown for outline, Prismacolor markers for coloring the cupcakes; Flourish Punk by Ek Success and then stickles was used to give the cakes and scrolls some glitz.
