Happy Lamb and Birthday Cupcake

I followed the sketch at Little Paper Shop (new to me blog that I think I'll try looking at more often since I like their sketches). I used TAC printable (the purple) and Lindsay's card kit (the red). I seem to have made the rectangles and oval a bit bigger than the sketch because there wasn't much room left for the 6 dots (3 per side). I used my trusty glue and multi-colored glitter to create the dots.For this lovely card, I followed the sketch over at Lili of the Valley (my birth flower's name). I think I did a better job guessing the sizes of the shapes, but I didn't have flowers as tiny as the sketch seemed to ask for or else my circle is bigger than the sketch's. I printed the cupcake from Lindsay's stamps and colored it with my colored pencils then cut it out. I glittered the icing with clear glitter and the sprinkles with pink glitter. After it was dry, I adhered it to lilac cardstock that I cut into a circle with my CM cutting system. The 2" x 1 3/4" rectangles are a printable freebie I pick up somewhere last year. I inked the edges of the rectangles and the circle with purple and attached them to gray cardstock (I don't have card sized purple cardstock - guess I know what I can buy now ). I glued purple flowers and pink strips in the right spots and wrote Happy Birthday with purple marker on the pink strips. As a final touch, I added a dot of silver paint to the center of each flower. It's now ready to go to my MIL for her Birthday.

Hope everyone is enjoying the 4th of July holiday.

I love sketches, but I really love how you used them here. Your cards are just lovely. That sheep is a doll. I am a fan of lambs.
The cupcake is sweet looking too. Great use of the sketch.


Happy 4th!!!
