Sparkle & Shine Challenge TWO: Sketch Challenge sponsored by Winnie & Walter

Hi crafty friends! I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! I'm finally back home from Whistler, BC. It was such an amazing experience and I had so much fun! Below is a picture of my boyfriend and I taken on Whistler Mountain.

Now back to my post, it's time for a new challenge on the Sparkle & Shine Challenge blog and this challenge is a sketch challenge! The winner will receive a gift certificate to Winnie & Walter (woohoo!).

Sparkle & Shine Challenge Two: Cupcake Birthday Card by Handmade by Yuki | "Sugar Rush" by Winnie & Walter

For today's card, I was inspired by the diagonal element of the sketch, however I decided put my own spin on it. I used the cupcake from the "Sugar Rush" set by Winnie & Walter to create a super cute and girly birthday card. I used the little happy face from the "Love You A Latte" set from Lawn Fawn and used my Copic Multliner pen to add extra eye lashes. I colored the cupcake wrapper with Copic Markers and paper pieced the icing using pattern paper from the "Let's Polka: Mon Amie" 6x6 paper pack. I used the little bow from the "Critters at the Dog Park" and colored it with the same Copic Markers.

Cupcake: R81, R83, RV10 R20
Bow: R81, R83

I die cut the birthday sentiment from the "Birthday Words" set from Paper Smooches twice from white cardstock and then again from Simon Says Stamp "Cotton Candy" cardstock. I glued all of the layers together for some added dimension. I used a small stitched rectangle die for the focal panel and matted the focal panel onto two pieces of pattern paper from the "Let's Polka" 6x6 paper pack I had die cut using the stitched borders from Pretty Pink Posh. I die cut a piece of white carddstock and pink pattern paper using an A2-stitched rectangle die and used a different Pretty Pink Posh border die to create the diagonally edges. I die cut a bunch of little hearts from the same pink pattern paper and adhered them onto the focal panel. As a finishing touch, I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and clear Wink of Stella to the cupcake.

Pretty Pink Posh sequins: 4mm Marshmallow, 6mm Marshmall, 4mm Pink Blush

I absolutely love the happy little cupcake and how how girly this card came out. I hope my card has inspired you and I can't wait to see what you create! Be sure to swing by the Sparkle & Shine Challenge blog for more amazing inspiration and to play along! ♥
