Cupcakes & Balloons

Today I have the two final girl birthday cards for the fundraiser. I can’t wait to show you the final two pieces of this fundraiser package!

First up is Balloon Girl from the Wee Ones Birthday collection from Bugaboo. For this card, I CASE’d Frances (Stamp Owl’s) card for the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. The challenge for the C4C DT was anything goes and for the rest of us to CASE one of the DT cards.

I really liked Frances’ layout on her card. I did change the shape to a regular standard card, but otherwise kept things fairly similar. One of my favorite color combos is PTI’s Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise. This pairs nicely with Basic Grey Sugar Rush. Another change I made was from the flowers on Frances’ card to the greeting on my card. I again used the PTI Simple Little Things sentiment — it worked perfectly for these cards. In place of the lower right flower is a trio of Sunflower Dew Drops.

Next up is the Cupcake Tower image. This is such a sweet image — she looks like she was just caught raiding the cupcake platter!

For my layout, I followed The Sweet Stop sketch for this week. Now, you might think I have something against flower embellies, but that isn’t the case. For one, I don’t have a large stash and two, I was trying to gear these to the under 6 crowd. LOL! I subbed buttons and bows for the flowers on the sketch. More Basic Grey Sugar Rush paired nicely with Pure Poppy. The sentiment is from There She Goes Cupcake Mix & Match.
