Papertake Weekly Challenge

Happy Monday to you! It is snowing like crazy here and it's not supposed to stop until Sunday! yuck!! On the upside my hubby got to play with his snow blower and that's always fun for him :)

Tonight's card is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge. This week it's a sketch
So one of the DT's for Papertake is Marja and her card so inspired me. The card she made is just fabulous and I love that it's decorated inside too :) If you have the time go check it out!

Today is my friend Angie's birthday so I decided to make her a card with this sketch. It is my first easel card and i was shocked at how easy it was to put together!

For instructions on putting together an easel card splitcoaststampers has a great tutorial here.

For the front of the card I started with white card stock then rubbed on some tumbled glass. I inked up my Unity distressed dots background with chipped sapphire and stamped it over the tumbled glass. Next I cut a piece of Bazzil card stock in Slipper (pink) to 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 and rubbed on some worn lipstick to get more of the color I wanted.  I mounted it on a piece of white card stock cut a 1/4" bigger and rounded both their corners. I used nesties labels 4 for the inside panels. For the bigger one I left it in the die and inked with tumbled glass.  The images and sentiment are from Hero Arts set Cupcakes. I stamped the cupcakes and candle on another piece of white. I colored with distress inks: worn lipstick, chipped sapphire, wild honey, spiced marmalade and tumbled glass, then cut them out. For the cupcake holder I used a silver gel pen and then covered them in Glossy Accents. I added some stickles to all the cupcakes in stardust. For the label holding the image and sentiment I outlined with Waterfall stickles. For the inside I inked a piece of white card stock with chipped sapphire and punched the edge with EK Success Apron Lace. Cut another piece of Slipper and rubbed it with more Worn Lipstick. The ribbon is from my stash ( I think I bought it at Target in the $1 bin) and all the cupcakes were adhered with foam.

Off to watch TV with the Hubs, hoping the snow stops soon!

Thanks for visiting!
