Oh no! More pink and brown!

I just can't seem to get away from it. I like it, really. It just seems that I use it too often. Anyhow, this week i {heart} papers is the sponsor of the sketch challenge on the CardPatterns blog. And as sponsor, Kate is giving away an awesome bundle of goodies to the winner of the challenge.

I had a really hard time with this sketch, but I did end up with a card I like. But as Kate says, "that's why they call it a challenge!"

What I used: (mostly available at i {heart} papers!)
Stamps: Birthday Cupcakes (Inkadinkado)
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Copics
Paper: PTI white, Basic Grey Bittersweet collection
Other: Ranger Glossy Accents, Stickles, white tafetta ribbon, bling

The simplicity of your card makes it gorgeous! Love your added glossy accents on the cupcake and your color combination. Your difficulty on the sketch paid off Carolyn! Your take on the sketch is great. Appreciate you playing along & hope to see you again!
