Cupcake With Sprinkles Birthday Card

I finally managed to get my entry for this week's Willow Sketchie Challenge done tonight. I once again used the theme as well as the sketch. Hope you all like it. :D

Cup Cake With Sprinkles Birthday Card



I used white card for the base card, which I then covered with a plain pink paper. I then cut a square slightly smaller than the card itself out of a pink and brown spotted paper, and attached it to the card. I attached 2 pink and white spotted ribbons down the right side of my card and cut them both to form a "V". Next I cut a triangle out of pink paper and attached it to the bottom left corner. I then cut 2 different sized rectangles out of yellow card and matted them with pink paper.



To make the cupcake I first drew a cupcake onto a piece of brown metallic paper and cut it out. Next I cut a strip of pink polka dot paper and folded it like an accordion. I then trimmed and attached it to the bottom of the cupcake cut out. Next I attached the cupcake to the center of the larger yellow card rectangle. I then glued a red diamonte heart to the top of the cupcake and long white beads on for sprinkles. I then attached it to the card. Lastly I made the sentiment by writing "Birthday" onto the smaller yellow card rectangle using a black marker.

I was very pleased with how this card turned out and I would like to thank Lisa from Willow Sketchie Challenge for a great sketch and theme. Good luck to all that enter. :D

    1. Thanks Hazel :-* I was almost going to use just glitter glue for the sprinkles, until I remembered that I still had all my old beads from my bead making days... So I dragged them out and was thrilled to bits when after having a little dig through them I found the long thin white beads, as they were perfect :D

    1. Thanks Gwyneth :-* Glad you like it :D I almost used a real cupcake case, but the paper was very thin and I thought it might get a little squished, so I decided it best to make one out of stronger paper ;)
