Paper Sweeties August Inspiration Challenge #34 - Happy Birthday


Today is a VERY SPECIAL DAY!!!  It's the beginning of August, and the beginning of the 3rd Birthday Month at Paper Sweeties!!!  We are hopping with TONS of fun sponsors for our challenge, PLUS we have a wonderful inspiration challenge for you, too!  Take a peek...

   

Isn't it such a fabulous inspiration?!  I LOVE the soft colors and fun marshmallow flowers on the cupcakes!  Check out the card I made for the occasion...


I paper pieces some balloons and the fun cake image from the Party Time stamp set.  I then die cut them out with the Party Time Sweet Cuts dies and added some sparkle and shine with glitter, Cookie Dough sequins, Robin Egg sequins, Marshmallow sequins, and Bubblegum sequins.  A bit of Raspberry twine and Blueberry twine was also added for some fun texture.


The sentiment was made using the Happy stamp set and Happy Sweet Cuts dies.  More Robin Egg sequinsMarshmallow sequins, and Bubblegum sequins were sprinkled throughout, along with another paper pieced balloon.


Well, I think this is TOTALLY sweet, don't you?!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below, friends!  I read them all and am so inspired by your kind words--THANK YOU for leaving them. :)


Now it's YOUR turn to join the fun!  Hop over to the Paper Sweeties blog to link up, and don't forget to check out the inspiration from the other gals, too!
