SSD Sketch Tuesday #48

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday and this one is the last one I'll be hosting as the sketch maker.  We've been using past Sweet Sunday Sketches all through October and I'm so completely thrilled to have been part of this amazing team, if only for a short while.  This week, we're using SSSC21, which is a perfect sketch to use up some of those scrap pieces of gorgeous designer paper we all have laying around.  This is such a great card to whip up in a flash - the scraps are 1-1/4" square and they're cut from pieces of DeLovely paper from Cosmo Cricket {yum!}.  Since I'm repeating the papers, I placed the stripes going different directions - it kind of creates some visual interest in the background.  The cupcake is from Cupcake Cutie and I stamped the bottom in Certainly Celery and the frosting in Pretty In Pink for the background and Pink Passion for the outline.  I added a few pink rhinestones I picked up from Michael's.  The sentiment is from Grunge and I stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa - I had to bling it up as well *wink*

Have a wonderful day!
