A Cupcake For You

Today's TAC Blog Hop features the set Cupcake Cuties and guest designer Mabelle (she's the stamp designer of this set and all "MRO" sets)! After you view my blog, be sure to check out the others.

This is another image that I've had colored for a while and finally decided to put her on a card. Those green pearls are from the "Bright" Gem Collection and go perfectly with TAC's Lilly Anna paper. See that pink button sitting there for no good reason? Well, there IS a good reason! I accidentally ripped the paper and had to cover it up somehow! :-)
When I did the next card, I had this sketch of Heather's in mind but not in front of me. I wasn't sure of the exact sketch, but I had the idea. Looks like I wasn't so far off! You can see Heather's card here. I colored this with my Copics, then used LOTS of Stickles!
The Dew Drops aren't from TAC, but I'm lovin' them!!!

In case you can't read it, the front of the card says, "I just read a report that said birthdays are good for you." Inside it says, "The more you have, the longer you live!" :-)
It's hard to see, but I paper pieced the bottom of the cupcake from Catelynne paper and colored the candle with a glitter pen.

Now go check out all the other wonderful creations!

WOW Diane! How fun! I love the layouts (card sketches) you used! The button is a HOOT! Great thinking! The first card is my fav ~ I LOVE how you colored her, the palette you used and the sketch. All of these elements came together perfectly! Great job on all!
