A Birthday Sketch Skip

Today is a special day!   Carol, our sketch mom, is celebrating a birthday!  My card today is dedicated to her!  Happy birthday, Carol!  Hugs & cupcakes! 

Here's the sketch we were given for today.  There was also a surprise challenge to use cupcakes.  Not a problem.  I used my favorite birthday set, Crazy for Cupcakes.  :)

The card base is 5 X 5 so I could fit the entire Scalloped Circle die on the front.  I used the Clear Circle die for the image layer.  The background layers are Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and Crushed Curry that's been run through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder.  I punched a hole in the image layer with the Slot punch and tied a bow with some Whisper White taffeta.  The frosting on the cupcakes is covered with Dazzling Diamonds for a little something extra.

Let me know what you think, and then head on over to Jeannette's blog to see what she created for you today.  Don't forget to leave Carol some birthday wishes when you get to her blog.  You can find links to all the team members on the UDI blog if any of the links are broken or missing.  

Enjoy your weekend!
