Super Happy Birthday!

We have another fun CAS challenge lined up for you this week. It's a theme this time: birthday cards.

I hadn't used my cupcake punch in a while, so that was my starting point. I used textured cardstock to give the cupcake some dimension, then outlined the frosting with a glitter pen. I mounted it on dimensionals and layered it on top of a couple of other punches. Only after I was finished did I realize that my layout is this week's Card Patterns sketch--Yay! Happy accident!

Now, don't you wanna play along? C'mon, everyone can use a few more b-day cards in their stash! Head over to the Splitcoast CAS forum for all the details.

Paper: Kraft, Pink Pirouette textured, PTI white, Bazzill white textured, dp (unknown--RAK) Accessories: ribbon (Ribbon fX), rub-on (SU), Sakura glitter pen, Martha Stewart cupcake punch, circle punch, designer label punch, paper piercer, dimensionals
