AVS204 Birthday Cupcake...

It's another Verve Sketch Challenge card! This one is for the forth sketch and I've also combined Jackie's challenge to use sewing on a card and Amber's challenge to make a birthday card. I had trouble trying to get a good photo of this one so excuse the picture!

I started with a base of green bazzill, layered with white and Basic Grey Porcelain DSP which I then sewed around the edge. The next layer is pink bazzill that has been cut using my brand new Labels 8 Nestabilities and then embossed with 'Script' EF. The sentiment is from SU's Birthday Whimsy - because I don't have any Verve birthday sentiments - stamped in Old Olive. The cupcake is from Verve's Cupcake Affair and has been stamped in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Creamy Caramel and cut it out with the Small Circle Nestabilities then I pierced around the circle. It was then matted with pink cut out with the Large Circle Nestabilities and then the Porcelain DSP layer was cut out with the Blossom Nestabilities. The icing (frosting) has then been covered in Opal Shimmerz to give it a sparkly look and I've added Kaisercraft Snow pearls to each of the flower centres. The whole panel was popped up on foam tape. Finally I finished by adding some white satin ribbon across the bottom and made the bow with my Bow Easy!
