Celebrate the Occasion!! Challenge #10

It's time to Celebrate the Occasion again!! This week, the Design Team was asked to create a Birthday project that is inspired by the following sketch:







I'm not usually good with sketches...so this was a difficult challenge for me, although I was fairly happy with how it turned out. I created this card for my neice, who just turned 6...I had to keep the embellishments to a minimum since this one was sent in the mail. I didn't want it to get ruined! :)







And a close-up of the mini cupcakes:





Recipe:

Cricut Cartridge: Sweet Treats, Accent Essentials

Cuttlebug Folders: D'Vine Swirls, Happy Birthday

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! and My Mind's Eye 'Bliss' stack

Sakura white gelly roll pen

Stamp from Recollections







Now, use the sketch to stir those creative juices!! Fix up a little somethin' somethin' and head on over to Celebrate the Occasion and link up your project!!
