Bake Me a Tower of Cupcakes For My Birthday

Happy Freebie Friday, folks! Have you been enjoying our week long birthday celebration at Catch The Bug? We sure have had a blast celebrating with you! Remember, you still have a little time to participate in the blog hop and daily challenges, so if you haven't yet - Jump on over to Catch The Bug to link up where you can! There are loads of prizes to give away, from Bugaboo Stamps. All the fun is still going on over at
Catch The Bug - Come play with us! Oh, and don't forget to head over to Bugaboo Stamps, to pick up this week's Freebie Friday image!

I have a birthday card to show you, today, using this week's Freebie Friday image, Cupcake Tower, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. My card layout uses the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. This is one of my favorite sketches because it includes a banner and I love them but don;t think to use them as often as I would like. I made a fun banner to hang across the top left corner, using washi tape and twine. I think it makes a great touch! The rest of the card has been embellished with tiny blue pearls that I just got from Santa at Christmas. I even put a pearl in the center of the O in the word YOU of the sentiment! Cute, right?! All papers are from my stash.

This card turned out to be perfect for a guy, too! Cant believe I managed to make another male card, again, already!
