Birthday cupcakes

Last week I received my very first Verve stamps from the Verve store, just in time to join the fun of the anniversary festivities. For this card I used the great sketch from the Anni-VERVE-sary 2012 Challenges Day 3 at Splitcoaststampers.

The image comes from the Birthday Bash set. I stamped the image with Memento rich cocoa and coloured it with Derwent coloursoft pencils. The circle and scallopped circle mat were cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die. The papers are from my new BasicGrey 6x6 pb&j paper pad. Don't you love the fresh colours of this PP? I inked all the edges with Antique Linen distress ink and finished the card off with a few buttons from my stash and a ribbon from Artemio.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
BasicGrey - #75 Anything goes
Bunny Zoe's Craft - #27 Summer
CYDA - #52 Anything goes [farewell challenge]
The Crafty Pad - #184 To die for [use dies/punches]
Craft Your Passion - #124 The power of three [use 3 of something - cupcakes & buttons]

Thank you for visiting. I would love it if you left a comment.
