Taking the (Craft) Plunge

Jumping off the high dive today! I've admired Jen del Muro's blog for some time, and each Saturday she posts a "Sketch For You To Try." I've played around with them before, but I've never posted a card to her site... until now :)
Here's the sketch that was our inspiration:I had some Michael's dollar spot stamps sitting un-inked and needing some love, so I used a cupcake stamp, as well as a birthday sentiment, and my new favorite paper, Dill Blossom from SEI. Looking at it now, I realized that I omitted the dark gray horizontal piece, but I don't think that's a capital offense. My favorite part are the Stickles sparkle on the cupcake frosting:


And now, I must get back to work. I'm headed home to Wisconsin on Thursday for a MONTH so I have insane packing to do! However, it's absolutely gorgeous outside today, thus I'm determined to get some of my work done so I can fit in a little reading/backyard lounging time :)
