Happy Birthday Cupcake!

I got my new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps so I am soooo excited to play along with the girls in their challenges now!  Even though I only have 2 Kimmie stamps for now, they will have to do! :)  This week the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge is paper piecing.  I have used Francesca....I so love her with all of her cupcakes!  I have paper pieced her lovely hat...oh how I wish I had a fun hat like that! It was my Grandma's birthday Sunday  so I thought it was perfect to use this cutie for Gram's card!  I've used the sketch over at Friday Sketchers for my layout.

Papers used are the NEW BG Sugar Rush which you can find over at Embellish!  Just click on the link in my sidebar to go and shop!  These papers in this collection are so fun and versatile....so much more than just Valentine's.

 Francesca was colored with my Copics and Spicas.  The Spicas were added to the tops of the cupcakes and candles.  Thanks to Lillian I found a new hair color combo!  She used E30 and E00 on her post here.  When I saw her post I knew I had to give that hair color a try!!!  I have added E35 to Lillian's combo for my Francesca.  I love this combo for a fun dirty blonde look....it's more subtle and soft than what my normal hair colors are so it's fun to have a new combo!  Again, her hat was paper pieced.  I added Star Dust Stickles to her scarf, belt, and trim on her dress for extra sparkles.


I used my new MS deep edge floral lace punch, but then I stamped out 6 cupcakes (the cupcake image comes with Francesca), colored them with my Copics and Spicas and put them in place of the flowers of the punch.  As you can see from the picture I popped up every other cupcake with a dimensional. 

Then I carried the layout through to the inside.  Barb has some amazing deals going on over at Embellish!  Click my DT blinkie in my sidebar to go and take a peek!  Make sure you tell her that I sent you! :)  There is also a DT CALL going on right now at Embellish!  Click -->here<-- to go for all the details.
