Just Us Girls #244 - Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  The Just Us Girls challenge this week is a sketch of my favorite of our challenges.  Nancy created this great sketch for us to use.
 I have a first birthday party to go to next weekend, so I decided to use the sketch to create his birthday card.  I stamped the cupcakes in four different Memento Luxe inks (love them!) on squares.  They looked a little ordinary, so I rounded two corners on each square for more interest.  The blue panel needed something too, so I used a Tim Holtz star stencil and translucent paste. But I'm disappointed that you can't see more of them!  Oh well!  The rest is pretty self-explanatory. 
You should stop by these blogs to see what the design team has created!  And we have a new guest this month...Shirley-Bee!
Thanks for stopping by!
