Happy Saturday everyone! Sorry I didn't post my candy yesterday as I said I would, but I have caught the cold bug and it hit me hard by mid morning! I am not feeling 100% today yet, but I feel a bit more rested. Also, I didn't mention that my kids started school on Wednesday and so that routine has taken place once again.  (It's a beautiful thing!) They are enjoying 2nd grade so far and loving their teachers-always a plus!  Here is a picture of them...

The creation I want to show you is a card I made using Our Craft Lounges' Friday sketch challenge.

I just love sketch challenges! And this one is fun! You can win some awesome OCL products for just playing along! Click here for the blog page with all the deets.

Here is my card with OCL's set of Big Birthday Wishes. For the cupcake frosting, I used Liquid Applique in white, (Liquid what?! LOL! Remember that stuff?) and my Glaze pen on the cherries which you can't really see in this picture.  I colored the bottoms of the cupcakes with my Copics and the dp is from Paper Studio to tie in the whole cupcake theme! I popped up the sentiment and main image and finished it off with the buttons tied with Bakers Twine.  I just love that stuff!  Next up is the inside of the card:

Here I used a little bit of the dp which I punched out with my SU! Scallop border punch and added it to the two connections of cardstock.  I then used the balloon stamp from the set and stamped that along the side.

Thanks so much for taking a peek and keep reading for the Blog Candy deets!
