Freshly Made Sketches: Iconic Birthday

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Mitchell.

I need a birthday card to give to my sister-in-law tonight!  She's not a girly-pink kind of person so I went for richer colors.  This cupcake with the sentiments right in it, plus their coordinating dies, made it all come together easily.


Then I got it all done and realized that the cupcake isn't currently available.  Sorry!!  It was a party favor during Taylored Expression's 9th birthday last week.  BUT...I'm told that it will be available for purchase sometime in the future so keep watching!

Hope to see you playing along!


Stamps: Taylored Expressions Iconic Wishes Birthday Stamp & Die Combo (available in the future)
Dies: Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangles Stacklets
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories We are...Family 6x6 pad.
Ink: Taylored Expressions Chocolate Truffle, Cookie Monster
Embellishments: Taylored Expressions Enamel Shapes in Lemon Meringe, Cooke Monster and Cherry Pop
