Hi friends! I'm surprising myself with this post, but I had to make a quick birthday card for one of my co-workers and decided I might as well play along with this week's Sweet Stop sketch:
A while back, when I was still involved with swaps, I hosted one where everyone had to create birthday focal points. The entire yellow piece (including the sentiment and cupcake) was created by one of the swappers- the whole idea behind the swap was to make pieces that would be really easy to add to a couple of pieces of patterned paper, or even just a piece of cardstock, and call the card done. I wanted to swap really intricate pieces that would make creating cards super easy whenever you found yourself pressed for time.
Needless to say, one of those focal pieces sure did come in handy tonight! After I had picked out my patterned papers, this card came together in about ten minutes. In case you're interested, the maroon piece is Stampin' Up! and the green and blue are DCWV.
I hope you enjoy this card and are having a happy Monday! Thanks so much for stopping by!
