Here is my sketch for this week's sketch challenge at Paper Craft Planet.  I was inspired by the new Cupcake Sprinkles stamp set from CTMH.  This is my favorite set from the 2009 spring catalog.  When I saw the CELEBRATE sentiment, I knew I wanted to stamp that along the side.  I decided to add it to the inside of the card, and show when was open and closed.  Soooooooooooo, I created the card below.

Check out the gallery at Paper Craft Planet for this sketch challenge here for more inspiration.

I really like this card!  When I was creating it everything just seemed to fall into place.  My mojo was working...LOL!  The card base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.  Then I cut 1 1/4 inches off the front, right side.  After stamping the CELEBRATE sentiment in juniper ink, I wrote on the letters with my 2 way zig glue pen.  Then I added prisma glitter to make it sparkle.  

The sprinkles on the cupcake were made with a 1/8" hand punch.  I adhered them to the cupcake with the same zig glue pen.  This took longer than just stamping the sprinkle images that comes with the set, but I wanted to make my sprinkles stand out.  Love them!  For the recipe, see below.

See the glitter....pretty!

I remembered I only had one bigger brad of each of those colors left in my stash.  What do you do with one brad in a color?  You can mix them with others to match the pattern paper.  I got lucky with this one.

Supplies used: All supplies are CTMH unless noted.  Paper - Key To My Heart January Promotion pattern paper, colonial white cs, juniper cs; Ink - juniper, creme brulee, juniper marker; stamp set - Cupcake Sprinkles; Accessories - tulip paper clip and bigger brad, creme brulee designer ribbon and bigger brad, juniper bigger brad, sorbet ric rac, prisma glitter, mat pack paper piercing guide (SU), pop dots (unknown) 

I hope you can play along with me this week.

Happy Stamping!
