Sweet Sunday Cupcakes

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC133, and I'm very happy to be back in the weekly groove.

For my card I used the fabulous For the Love of Cupcakes from Taylored Expressions and created a birthday card to celebrate the TE Store's 3rd birthday! There's a big birthday bash going on until Monday, September 5th, so be sure to pop over to the TE Store and add a few things to your stamping repertoire.

I did plenty of paper piecing on the cupcakes with fun patterns from My Mind's Eye A Happy Heart pad. The rest of the image was coloured with a few copic markers.

Do you see the swirls on the background paper? I did that with the swirls impression plate, and used my medium scallop border die to cut out the scalloped border. A few pink Twinkles add just the right amount of bling in the corner.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now let's go see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
