Dear Friends,

Happy Monday!  May it be a wonderful week for you.

Let’s start our week with something sweet. A cupcake!!  For this week, I decided to challenge myself with two sketches.  Using one sketch is a challenge — adding more than one . . . now that’s when the challenge gets fun!  For this week I did the TGIF challenge (#TGIGC48 challenge) and the Stampin’ Celebration Challenge (SC#125).

TGIF MARCH Challenges-004  SCIpix-023







For the challenges, I had to use the colors Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette, and Pool Party and something sweet. I also had to follow the design sketch above.  Wowser, it was neat trying to figure it out.


To fit the sketch, I put glimmer tape on the top of the card.  Using scissors, I cut the washi tape into banners of different sizes.  I chose white glitter tape instead of a different metallic color because I wanted a subtle look.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Sprinkles of Life, Blooming Birthday
Paper: Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Birthday Bouquet DSP
Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette
Accessories:  Glimmer washi tape, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Elegant dots embossing folder

If your order is less than $150, please use hostess code VRPRC4R3

Hope you have a sweet week
