Sweet Party Cake

Hi there and welcome back!  I have a card to share that I made for the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts.  Continuing with my desire to use up retired designer paper (of which I have A LOT!) this card uses Sweet Shop on a card for my granddaughter's 8th birthday.

Here's the fun sketch and link to PPA:

Because balloons float (ha ha) the circle at bottom right became the balloons at top left, otherwise I stayed true to the sketch.  The balloons were stamped in Versamark, then Strawberry Slush, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  They were popped up on dimensionals after I'd drawn strings with an Early Espresso marker.

The cake image was stamped first on Whisper White in Strawberry Slush, then stamped a second time on a separate piece of paper in Versamark, then heat embossed in Early Espresso embossing powder.  I trimmed the second image of the cake dish out, colored the bottom portion with a Pool Party marker and then adhered it with dimensionals.

The ribbon is the new Ruffled Stretch Trim in Strawberry Slush and it acted as kind of base for the stamped image.  The cherries atop the cupcakes in the designer paper were all decorated with Dazzling Details, then rhinestones adhered at different corners for some added bling.  I mean, what eight year old girl does not want things bright and sparkly?

Thanks for dropping by today!  If you have a moment, I'd love to hear from you.
