Cupcake Inspirations Theme Challenge

Hello dear friends! I hope you've had a lovely weekend! Today I have a fun patterned birthday card to share with you for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Today's challenge is a birthday theme. How fun!


I started by printing out my image from Wags and Whiskers on some fun chevron DSP from I Am Me. I paired it with some Birthday Basics DSP and some Basic Gray card stock. I colored in some fun accents in the image - the party hats, present and wee mouse, Squeak. I'm still torn on whether or not I should color in Ellie, the elephant. I think she might look okay, but my coloring skills aren't so fabulous and you know that once I start, there's no turning back... For now, I'm liking her chevron pattern. Then I embellished the card with some Pool Party Baker's Twine, some designer buttons, and the Chalk Talk stamp that I embossed in White on some Basic Gray card stock and die cut with the coordinating die. Hope you like it and are having a fabulous day!
