CIC #99 - Birthday Wishes

Hi ya'll!

This is my second post of the day.  For this weeks CCC, please scroll down.

I'm SO excited to bring you my first project as a CIC Sweetie!  I have looked through the photos of the cupcakes for the next few weeks, and my gosh, are they beautiful!  I cannot wait to share them with all of you each Sunday.

This week we are being sponsored by Prairie Fairy Designs.  They have the most adorable images.  You must check them out!  You can read all about them HERE.  One lucky winner this week will receive 5 images of their choice!  Yep, I said 5.  Fantastic, right?!

This week we have a mini cake as inspiration, isn't it gorgeous?!  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I fell in love with this cake almost immediately.  It's my favorite color, after all, and is just too pretty not to love.  I tried to add all of the elements I could into my card, and hope I was able to pull it off.  What do you think?

I'm not one to "fussy cut" much, but I chose Sketchy Blooms from Prairie Fairy, and thought they would be perfect for that this time.  I colored them with my Copics, and then "fluffed" them up a bit to add some dimension.  The background panel that's embossed is a light blue color, but in my photo is looks white.  I had a difficult time getting a good picture of my card yesterday.  All in all, I love how it turned out.  The images are adorable, and the mini cake was great inspiration.

I hope you'll head over to the CIC blog to see what everyone else has for you today.  They're all amazing!  I'm still pinching myself. lol
