Winner & cupcake b-day card!

My apologies for the delay in announcing the winner of the goodies courtesy of Paperworks Co! I'm back home in Canada after a wonderful trip to Seattle for a wedding surrounded by amazing friends! FYI - Seattle = stamp heaven!!! I was lucky enough to be there for an annual sale at Impress...I will have to play with those goodies and share a card!

Firstly, thank you for all your sweet, kind compliments on my projects! It was an honour to be a guest designer and part of the Rachelle Anne Miller for PWCO stamp release blog hop! I truly had fun playing with these new images! Also, thank you for sharing your last-wedding-you-attended moments!

Now on to the winner....

Congratulations to Kathy!!! I'll send you an email asking for your name and address and I'll get your goodies on their way to you! Again, thanks to Peggy for supplying the blog candy!!! =)

*.*.*.*.*HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY, PEGGY!!!*.*.*.*.*

This was a double challenge; part of the PWCO Sunday Sketch #30 (cupcake theme in honour of Peggy from PWCO's 30th birthday) and CPS sketch #164.

I loooooove this Basic Grey Cupcakes paper from the Nook and Pantry collection! It's very colourful and I love the vintage look. I had fun colouring the oh-so-cute Birthday Parade image (Rachelle Anne Miller for PWCO) and choosing my colours from the fun and pretty patterned paper.

I wanted to use these pins I had found as well as a button, so the CPS sketch was perfect for this card! The tissue flower was super easy to make and there's even a tutorial on SplitCoastStampers *here*. I didn't use a flower die, I just roughly hand cut 3 flowers of the same size and 2 smaller ones.

I used my *favourite* glitter gel pen (Uni-Ball Signo - "Sparkling") to add some sparkle to the 'Happy Birthday'.

Thanks for visiting! =)

PS Yes, this card is huge! *lol* I simply folded the brown 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock in half.

Cupcake Birthday
