Good Morning to You, Good Morning to You...

Hey guys, Happy Saturday! I'm so sorry...it's not morning any more and my SFYTT post is tardy. I did get to sleep in this morning, though!

I knew I wanted to use my new Smells Like Cake set from The Cats Pajamas. It was just released yesterday, but my LSS had ordered it, so I got lucky and snatched up both this one and You Say it's Your Birthday. So cute!!!

Anyway, here's my card for this week's Sketch for You to Try and also for this weeks OCC Challenge which was to make a birthday card (did I get lucky or WHAT??)
Ok, so my main image was a bit big, but I had my heart set on using it. Real estate was kinda hard to come by on this card, but I think I did good fitting it all on there, whaddya think? I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out using my Creative Memories circle cutter. I added some crazy stitching on my square layer before adding the circle on dimensionals. The DP and red paper is from the Basic Grey Cupcake 6x6 pad. Then I added the background layers and my little cardstock banner thingy on the bottom with Happy Birthday and sprinkles stamped on it. To add a little pizazz, I covered the cupcake and some other areas on the image with Stickles.

Here's a detail shot:
So I hope you like my card...I'm off to finish cleaning the house (fun) and then maybe get a little more stamping time. Make sure you check out Jen's card along with Bonnie's final card with us as our guest on Jen's blog, and creations from Amy R., Amy S., and Susan. Carole will be playing tomorrow...she had to go do family stuff today. Don't forget to use the keyword SFYTT if you upload to SCS so we can all see your creations.

Have a great Saturday!!
