Celebrate with Chalk, Cake and a Sketch!

My card today is so much fun! It was truly inspired by multiple challenges that worked really well together.

Over at Heart 2 Heart challenges we are baking a cake! I only have a few stamps with cake images, but this is my favorite...cupcakes with a cherry on top! Yum!

I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. It's a clean and simple sketch and the twist this week was to have a Birthday theme!

Finally, the photo at Inspired By has the most awesome chalkboard home d├ęcor. I love the trend of chalkboard art right now and knew that with the theme and sketch it would work perfectly!

I embossed white powder on black cardstock, then smudged some White Daisy ink to appear like a chalkboard. You will also notice some bright, fun Dream Pop papers in there! {You'll have the chance to order this gorgeous paper for yourself soon!} The cupcakes and stand were colored in with alcohol markers.

You should check out all of these challenge blogs. There's so much inspiration and creativity to be found!
Thanks for stopping by! 8)
