CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #11: Featuring My Mother-In-Law's Birthday Card! :)

For my final posting of the evening, I would like to share my entry for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #11: Sweets and Treats.  I decided to enter the card I created for my mother-in-law's birthday.  I am absolutely IN LOVE with this card.  I have to give credit to the PSA Essentials' Stamp Camp blog and guest designer Stephanie Jones for inspiring my card.  Stephanie did a similar background using alligators, and it inspired me to break out my "Whimsy Cakes" stamps from PSA and create my own version for my mother-in-law:

Supplies Used:
Card:  Crane & Co. White Notecards (I bought them cheaply when a local stationary store went out of business.)
Cardstock: White Cardstock (for my Imagine)
Cartridge(s): Cricut Imagine "Better Together"
Stamp(s): PSA Essentials' "Whimsy Cakes" (background - I stamped the single image multiple times to create the background effect), Pink by Design's "Take the Cake" (sentiments)
Glitter Glue:  Stickles in "Baby Blue" and "Cotton Candy", studio G Glitter Glue in Black
And I colored the background cupcakes using regular ol' colored pencils :)

I love the effect of using a single stamp to create a cool background that fits perfectly with the rest of the card.  Now I can only hope my mother-in-law loves it as much as I do!

Thank you for visiting my site!  Happy Crafting!
