Cupcake Birthday Wishes

Good Monday morning!  Today is a special opening for the Classic Design Challenge Blog as this month we celebrate our 8th Birthday!  Over on the Challenge Blog be sure to submit your 'Handmade Birthday Card' for an additional chance to win a Birthday stamp set!

We have several sponsors this month ~ All Dressed Up Digital Images., Keen Crafters Design Papers, and Mirtillamente Digital Stamps and Papers.  For my Design Team project I've selected 'Cup Cake' from All Dressed Up and also used the Happy Birthday digital papers from Keen Crafters Design.

This is another great All Dressed Up image with lots of details and yet it has lots of area that you can add your own touch.  I started by sizing the image to about 4" x 6" and printing on Neenah 110# cardstock.  I used my Copic markers for coloring. Since I was making my card an inside scene, I added a baseboard just above the start of the table legs.  Then I colored the floor a light wood color.   That left two random flowers 'on the floor' instead of the ground, so I added tiny flower pots for those.

Next I selected the pink confetti paper that I wanted to add in the background from the Keen Crafter sponsor.  I printed a piece about 5" x 3".  I carefully cut off the top of the colored image above the banner and top of the balloons.  Then I positioned the pink piece back over area and overlapped to connect to the bottom of the card. 

Once these two pieces were secured together, then I die cut them using Gina Marie Designs, Label 3 to get the pretty decorative edge.  I used the same die set for the burgundy mat.  After selecting a Kraft card base, I matted the dark green background matting, then secured the burgundy, and the two patterned images.  

After all the layers were secured, then I used the gold stickles and added the accents at the balloon banner rope  and on the cupcakes.  Lastly I raised the sentiment with fun foam before securing at an angle on the left corner.
