Happy birthday to You!

Good Morning!

Today I'm playing a long with a few challenges.  It's been a while since I've been able to enter in any challenges.  School is definitely keeping me busy along with my family so it was nice to be able to craft yesterday! 

The other night I was blog surfing for about 5 minutes and came across fellow ctmh consultant's Kristine Porter's card using the Mojo Monday sketch and Later Sk8r.  Her card was awesome and she totally inspired me so I thought I'd try using the sketch too.  Here's the sketch for Mojo Monday:

I also came across a challenge for Bitten By the Bug 2 to use the color Amethyst and Cupcakes or Birthday Cakes. 

Here is my creation:

One thing I love about ctmh is the ability to mix and match their papers!  I mixed Claire paper with Chantilly paper.  I love the color combo.  I was struggling at first with the colors to use but I like this combo together.  The Smokey Plum cardstock does not come with either of these paper packs so I added it.  The cupcake was cut using the Artiste circut cartridge and the circles were cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Supplies used: (all ctmh unless noted)
Claire paper pack
Chantilly paper pack
Artiste Collection- birthday
Artiste and Art Philosophy Circut Cartridges
Birthday perfect fit
Washi Tape
Red, Pink, Purple Sparkle Assortment
(Cherry) Autumn Lane Assortment- Retired
Grey Wool Ink
Smokey Plum Ink
Smokey Plum Cardstock

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
