Cupcake Birthday Card

Sorry for the bad photo for this cute card. I haven't been able to find my USB cord yet since returning from vacation, so I haven't been able to use my camera to take my pictures for you all.

I made this card for the weekend sketch challenge which was hosted by Cami this weekend. You should check out her blog. She has been such a great inspiration to me. I love her style of cutsy cards. And she colors so wonderfully. I also purchased a Janome Sew Mini sewing machine after reading all of her wonderful comments about hers. And I just had to try out my hand at sewing on my card for this week since she was the one hosting the challenge.

Now mine is nothing close to her greatness, but I am glad I am trying it out. I really wish I knew how to sew better, but I'll keep practicing.

I know it's hard to see the sewing in this photo, I am so sorry! But if you click on the picture it will bring it up a little bigger for you to see.

I used a set of Studio G clear stamps for the cupcakes and the Let's Party. The cupcakes are all cut out and popped up with dimensionals. I also used my Sakura Glitter Pen and Sakura Clear Glaze Pen on the cupcake tops and candles so they have a little bling and shine to them.

Can't wait to give this to someone for their birthday!

great layout, I am sure it is better in real life-I have yet to try to sew on cards yet

This is so cute Jen! I loved that sketch! I just finished a card with it too (haven't posted it yet). Yours looks great! Love the cupcakes! I can't see your sewing in the picture, but I'm sure it looks great!
