Card Patterns Sketch #129

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I've got lots to do today so I'm dropping by now to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns Sketch.   This week's challenge is sponsored by Sparkle Creations.  Be sure to check out the cute stamps in Sparkle's store! 

Here is my take on the sketch:

Sparkle generously provided the DT with some fun images to create our cards.  I chose Cupcake Ruby.  Isn't she cute with that giant yummy cupcake?  I started with a card base of GKD Smoky Slate and layered with patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Hazel 6x6 pad.  I used a Martha Stewart Daisy Edger Punch for the horizontal borders.  I stamped Ruby with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White and colored her with Copic markers.  I added some Liquid Pearls to her jewelry and hair pins.  The berries on the cupcake were covered with Glossy Accents and the candle flame with Stardust Stickles.  I layered and popped everything up to finish my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by the Card Patterns Sketch blog and check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the Card Patterns design team, our wonderful guest designer, Leann, and some from the Sparkle Creations DT, too.  I'm sure you will be inspired to play along with us!

Have a terrific weekend!
