It wasn't me ...

For those of you that don't know, I work from home and this morning my company's server was down for a couple of hours ... which was great because I was able to finish one of my cards for Taylor's 1st Anniversary Cupcake Sketch challenges. I swear I had nothing to do with this *ummm* unfortunate situation, but it sure made my day.

So here's the card I made for Monika's sketch. The cupcake image and chunky glitter are from Treehouse Stamps. I used some Bo Bunny patterned paper to paper piece the cupcake wrapper. The icing has Stardust gelly roll pen on it and then I used my Quickie Glue pen on the sprinkle dots and added the Girly Girl chunky glitter. I used my Nesties like crazy on this card. I've been wanting to make a scalloped circle card base (so thanks for the great challenge, Monika) and I definitely will be making more.

This card will be going to a friend who knows I was taking cake decorating classes, so she sent me some accessories and an adorable cupcake decorating book. She's a paper crafter too and I know she will love this card. So, I *may* try to whip up a little set of cards to give to her ... we'll see ... I always have the best of intentions, but often don't have the time to make all the things I want to make. But I must make time for the final 3 cards for Taylor's Anniversary challenge.

I gotta get one of these work from home gigs! I love the color combo on this card and of course, that you used an image and supplies from Treehouse!
