I might not be a Britney Spears fan but that song came to mind with this card. What did I do again? I made another card with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge sketch, it wasn't really a mistake, I woke up this morning and just knew I had to create a bright fun card with the now retired Ice Cream Parlor ribbons and buttons!
I usually don't do bright cards, but I do love seeing bright cards. I am really happy with the way this card has turned out, the Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo are so bright and cheery, just perfect for a cheery birthday card don't you think? I used the Cup Cake Punch and ran the 'icing' through the elegant lines embossing folder and sponged some Melon Mambo over it to give some swirls in the icing. The cupcake is finished off by a cute little cherry and layered onto a star-burst punched out of the Fancy Flower Punch that I re- punched slightly off-set.
I posted a picture of this card and then started thinking maybe it could do with 'a little more', more what I wasn't sure, but I thought the Daffodil Delight was a bit plain, bright but plain. I wanted to add something to it to give it some texture, I then remembered that in the Short and Sweet stamp set there is a cute little itsy bitsy cupcake, how perfect to stamp in both VersaMark and Daffodil Delight to make two shades of colour. I then added some sponging to the edges of the card - I love sponging.
Hope you like this entry into the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge, I am off to do some washing then back for some more creativity.
