Make it Monday: Go-To Sentiment Card

Papertrey Ink has started a weekly challenge called Make it Monday!! This week's first challenge is to make a go-to sentiment card which is basically a card with a lot of sentiments on it that all say the same thing.  What a fun idea!

Here is the card I made for this challenge.


Yep! A cupcake again.  I can't seem to get enough of them!  They are SO MUCH fun!!  I wanted my color combination to be a super fun one that just "says" birthday!  This color combo is Harvest Gold, Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy & White. 




I pulled out some more of my glittery cardstock (yes, I am addicted to it for sure!!) for the top of the frosting.  I just love that sparkly look!  You can also see that I added some texture to my sentiment panel.  I am continually amazed how different a panel like this with an image on it looks after it has had some texture added to it!! It totally changes the look!  I also added a little sewing around the edge of the card.


This card is also has a lot of dimension!  You can see that better in this photo.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed this card!

As I first started to look at your card, my thought was, We all are loving cupcakes lately. Then I scrolled down and you said almost the exact same thing! This is a really cute card, I love this idea that Erin gave us. I decided I am going to buy the cupcake collection. So far you and your designs have cost me $39 in stamps. Keep it up, I think.
