Fusion Card Challenge

I am back for another sketch challenge!  In case you have not noticed, sketch challenges are my favorite blogs!  Having a great sketch, makes your cards come together so easily. Today, I am joining in the Fusion Card Challenge.  With Fusion, you can use the sketch, the photo or both.  I just went with the sketch.  I might feel like a penguin with the negative temps...but am just not in the mood to stamp them!  I went with a clean design with a few added layers.  My card was created with the new Years of Sweetness Stamp Set.  The set has a retro feel and I tried to carry that out with my two tone stamping. Here is a look at the complete set.

The outlined shapes coordinate with the Cricut Artbooking Collection.  I have yet to stamp the cupcake, but I have seen some super cute cards created with it!  Here is a look at the original sketch, which I pretty much completely copied!

I stamped my Happy Birthday image in pigment inks and clear embossed.  The embossing gives the card a little pop in person.  I created my own banners.  I stamped Lagoon cardstock with either Lagoon ink and Sapphire ink. I popped up my birthday sentiment panel and curled the ends of the banners to give them more dimension.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1827 Years of Sweetness Stamp Set
X6007 Lagoon Cardstock
X6021 Sapphire Cardstock
X6027 White Daisy Cardstock
Lagoon Pigment Ink-Retired
