Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 66


Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Thursday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC66 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

We're having a HUGE birthday party here in SSSCland - April 24th was Vicki's, Sarah's, and my birthday.  Crazy, huh?  Sarah had the brilliant idea to exchange birthday information with the SSSC crew and 3 of us had the same birthday - so I'm thinking we all need the same birthday, but that didn't fly too well.  LOL!

To help me celebrate, I'm using this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal - AND to make it even sweeter, it's a birthday cuppie, which just happens to be for HSE's own Rachel - her birthday is Tuesday.  Isn't April just full of happy goodness?  hahaha!  I loved the Neapolitan colors, so I went with that theme, as well as my favorite little cupcake stamps from PTI.  I stamped the top of the cupcake on some Green at Heart paper from Basic Grey (I {heart} Basic Grey!) and then cut out both the bottom and top of the cupcake and popped them up on dimensionals.  The top of the cupcake is popped up twice to give it a little more dimension over the bottom.  I made the sentiment bend by placing my clear block over my scallop and then wrapped the sentiment around the edge of the scallop so it matched.  Cute, no?  The rest of the Sweeties have more Cupcake Inspiration for you too ~ Colleen (out this week) ~ Rachel ~ Kelli ~ Kristen ~ Michelle ~ Piali (out this week) ~ Teresa ~

And, don't forget about The Sweet Sunday Stampers - they also have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so don't forget to stop on by to see:
Thanks for taking on the challenge this week!
