Share a Challenge!

This challenge has been so much fun for me.  I'm enjoying checking out all the other challenges you participate in!  Thanks for sharing!  Here's where you can find the details:  HIMCR #60 - Share a Challenge. 

Now it's my turn to share a challenge.  Many of you already know that I'm in a blog group with some really talented ladies:  The Paper Dolls.   We have a group blog that has a monthly challenge and I thought it would be fun to share it here on HIMCR.  The challenge is to make a birthday card using birthday wrapping paper.  What a great way to repurpose!  Now I've got to start saving more of those scraps too!! LOL!!  Here's a link with all the details:  The Paper Dolls Challenge #51.   

Here's what I came up with:

The yummy cupcake was cut at 3" from the Sweet Treats cartridge.

Card Base:  Red 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   Target $1 wrapping paper ( I love these small rolls!), Lavender Moon, white
Ink:  PTI True Black
Stamps:   Stampin Up Warmest Regards
Accessories:  Cricut & Sweet Treats cartridge, Clearance holiday ribbon from JoAnn's I believe, Diamond Stickles, dimensionals
