Taylored Expression Challenge

I'm trying to get caught up on some birthday cards and thought I might as well make a card that was also a challenge card. Today's card follows the sketch provided at Taylored Expressions and uses Basic Grey's Lime Rickey papers. I just love the bright colors in this collection!

I colored the Hero Arts cupcakes with Copic markers and then covered the "frosting" with some Stickles for sparkle. I added a saying from Impression Obsession and some red jewels from Memory Box to finish the card.

Here is a close up of the sparkle:

Here is the sketch that I was following:

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Wow Laura, your card turned out awesome! I did one too, getting ready to post it now. Love how you added the cupcakes at the top corner. I couldn't get past the buttons since that's what the other cards had on them.
