{The Cat's Pajamas} TCP Tuesday Sketch Challenge

It's TCP Tuesday challenge time at The Cat's Pajamas and Wendy is our hostess for this rotation with a sketch challenge.

I started out by cutting the main panel from patterned paper with my Silhouette using the Free Cutables that Alma provides with each sketch

I stamped the One Cupcake image onto Copics X-Press It cardstock, colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out. I paper pieced the cupcake wrapper and then attached the image to the panel with dimensional dots. The extra sprinkles and the sentiment were stamped directly onto the card base. The banner at the top was created with the Bitty Banners CutUps and strung together with Hemptique cording.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and dies, Avery Elle and Simple Stories dp, PTI and Bazzill cs, Hemptique twine, Copic Markers
Copics: Bunny-E40, E41, E42, E44, R0000, R81; Cupcake/Sprinkles-W00, E81, E81, E83
