A Bugaboo Birthday

This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches, our sketch is a bit off-key and unusual with some different elements. (I wish, after I was finished, that I'd thought about embossing the solid pink portion. I have some really pretty embossing folders that would have added another interesting dimension to my card. Oh well, make note for next time!).

Here is the sketch as provided by Melissa:

Our sponsor this week is a familiar "face." Jodie, of Bugaboo Stamps, has graciously agreed to once again sponsor the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge. Jodie also provided some of her whimsical and fun images for the DT to color up and use. Thank you Jodie!

My image is Chibi Cupcake which I colored in a variety of colors found in my background DP. I used a solid piece of card weight for the triangle and matted it with red. I also cut the fish tail from red card weight and matted it with the pink. Because my background is quite busy, the swirl element on the bottom was not used. However, I did add pink gems to three of the corners for a little more interest. The sentiment is from a set I got when I purchased a British magazine. I stamped it on white with Holiday Red ink (from Close to My Heart), and I then cut it with a Spellbinder die, placing the words inside the top of the die so that when it cut, I got a bit of a "tab" look. I tucked the words to one side of the triangle and the fish tail on the other to balance it. I used a Spellbinder oval die to cut my image.

Stop by the Tuesday Morning Blog and have a look at what the other DT have made. As always, lots of talent and lots of inspiration. Then let us see how you use our sketch! 


  1. Festive birthday card! I really like the placement of the sentiment and the fun background paper.
