Here is my take on Beate's sketch for this month. My card was very simple, but I'm happy with the results. I used Close to Cocoa and Baja Breeze ink with a blender pen to color the image of my cupcake platter from Crazy for Cupcakes (which is on special this month from Stampin Up!). I used Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White card stock. And the red is from the hostess prints pack. I got out my new Sizzix Big shot, and our new Top Note Die (exclusive from Stampin Up!) and cut the top note in half. Then I just popped out three 1/4 circles using the punch and tied white taffeta ribbon around my Baja Breeze cs. LIke I said, very simple, but very cute IMO.
P.s. I also used that cute little birthday sayings set. At the moment I can't remember it's official name!
I am trying to stay motivated in making stuff, so I pay close attention to Beate's challenges. This one I used Stampin Up's Eastern Blooms with Tangerine Tango ink, Close to Cocoa, and Versamark. I used Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, and Kiwi Kiss card stock, and the Hawaiian Papaya designer series paper. I also used a tiny bit of Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon in there too.
I am really happy with my results. though my intention was to copy the layout of the inspiration, but I did it from memory, so it wasn't perfect. If I wanted it to be perfect I guess I should have looked at the inspiration peice closer :)
