Have A Yummy Birthday! Sweet Sketch Wednesday #86!

Goodmorning everyone! Can you believe it's the very last day of January?! This month sure went by fast! Looking back on this month I didn't nearly get as much done as I would have liked, but I think I have majorly improved since last year! I managed to at least blog 3-4 times a week and kept my mojo flowing through most of the month. I'm hoping to improve each month and by the end of the year I would like to consider myself as a pro blogger/crafter...lol!

Anyways, on to the challenge...which I'm sure everyone stopped by here to see instead of reading my chatter...lol. Over at "Sweet Sketch Wednesday"", they have a beautiful sketch this week that I had loads of fun playing with! And their sponsor for the week is "Bugaboo Stamps" which isn't a challenge at all for me to use! I not only LOVE Bugaboo stamps, but hubs recently let me go just a little crazy during their 60% off birthday sale!! I got me some absolutely adorable digis that will keep me busy for quite a long time!

Here's my take on their sketch this week with one of Bugaboo's adorable digis I picked up...as you can see I flipped the sketch...


The sentiment is my own, which I will be sharing for free on Friday! So if you like it, be sure to stop back by at the end of the week!

Here is a closeup of the yummy buttons and glazed cupcakes!...


The sentiment...


And of course no handmade card would be complete without the inside all dressed up...


CARD INGREDIENTS:
PAPERS: Cocoa and baby pink textured cardstock, shimmery turquoise card stock and design paper all from "DCWV"
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is an adorable digi stamp from "Bugaboo Stamps" and the sentiment "Have a yummy Birthday" was created by me.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Pink Rick Rack ribbon and pink and turquoise buttons.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Spellbinders" with ovals, circles, scalloped ovals and scalloped circles dies, "Cuttlebug" with dot embossing folder and scalloped border punch from "Fiskars".
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with pink color thread. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added to the image  for even more sparkle! The image was cut and 3D mounted. 

This card draws inspiration from and will be entered into the following challenges:

#2.) Etsy Inspired -Inspired by this from "Too Cute Kawaii" on Etsy 
#3.) Fab 'n' Funky -Use a digi
#4.) Do it With Digis -Pink and Girly
