FS137 Over the Top

For today's Featured Stamper challenge, I chose to CASE this card. I knew this was the right one when she said “I didn’t want it to be over the top” because I DID want mine to be over the top! This is for my BIL who has a wonderful eye for art!

Tankgrl’s card did not have any coloring. Neither did mine….the cupcake, icing, and candle were stamped, cut out, sponged, and paper pieced in!

Things I changed:
1. Color scheme….added purple
2. From cake to cupcake
3. Simplified the sketch
4. Over the top!

My friend Lisa asked me for some more tips on sponging the other day so I'll be back later to write some up.
