Card*A*Licious Challenge 20

The Challenge for Card*a*licious this week is to use Blue, Green and circles. I read on Danielle Flanders Blog that this was the challenge and checked out. I like Challenges. I feel like they make it easier for me at times. I kind like having a starting point. So Being that the challenge was blue and green I knew I had blue and green
birthday paper in my stash somewhere for just this occasion. I found this really cute paper amongst my stuff and set to work. I believe it was from a DCWV seasonal stack that I bought probably a year or more ago. I find that if I buy the seasonal stacks I give my cousins more of it to play with and scrapbook with then I actually use. So I don't buy them too often. Anyway. I used paper scraps cut into strips to create the stripe pattern on the bottom of the card. Then Finished that off with felt ric rac ribbon and self adhesive ribbon from KI memories.
Then I punched out a circle from green paper. Then Stamped the cup cake on to two different papers one patterned and one card stock and pieced them together. Put the cupcake on the circle and decided that was boring so I took out my green and blue ribbons and covered the circle with ribbon and then cut around it to get the extra ribbon off. I also pop doted the cupcake on the ribbon circle and placed that. Then I stamp happy birthday on cardstock in Moonstruck Blue (CTMH) then re stamped it in embossing ink (distress embossing in from Ranger) and embossed using Clear embossing powder (ranger). I then added drops of stickles (ranger) to the sprinkles on the cupcake and some brads (Making Memories) to the sentiment. Pin It Now!

I like your idea of stamping on patterned paper and doing a paper piecing of the cupcake. Very cool!
