The Paper Players #500

The Paper Players has reached a milestone event!  Their 500th challenge!  In celebration, Jaydee is hosting a CAS challenge with a Celebration theme!  Please come join us in the celebration!

I created my card with big and bold sentiment stamp from the Sweetest Birthday Wishes stamp set. You will not find this stamp in the current catalog, but it can still be purchased in the Online Only section of my website.  There are tons of items, not featured in the catalog, that are available in the Online Only Section!  Be sure and check it out before you place your next order!  Here is a look at the complete set-

To create my card, I stamped my image in Intense Black ink and then colored with Copics. I wanted to make my cupcake pop...while still keeping the card on the CAS side.  I covered my icing in Diamond Stickles to mimic the edible glitter you see so often on cupcakes.

My card is based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  The overall card size is 5"x 5".  The white panel is 4" x 4".  Here is the original sketch design.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1890 Sweetest Birthday Wishes
CC6201 Brushed Paper Pack
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
