DYSU Challenge #4 - Patterned Paper

Gosh, cannot believe it is Thursday again already!  Where are the weeks going?  Anyway, as it is Thursday, it can only mean it is challenge day over at  Do You Stack Up. This week our theme is Patterned Paper.

Our sponsors this week are:
Black Leaf Studios who are giving the lucky winner the Sweet Cupcake Digi Stamp Set.

and Stitchy Bear who will give our lucky Winner a $10 Gift Certificate for their store.

I have made a round easel card using one of the gorgeous cupcake designs from Black Leaf Studios.  I have paper pieced the cupcake using some lovely papers from the "Nitwits" collection "So Berry Precious Too".  Aren't these just lush?  The "icing" on the cake has been decorated with glitter - sorry this does not show up too well in the picture. 

My inspiration for this card comes from the amazing Norma.  Her blog is here and the tutorial for the card is here.  You must be sure to visit her  - she has some wonderful creations.

The "Celebrate" sentiment is from Create with TLC

and the circular sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments.  Both are digis.

The plain and scalloped circles have been cut on the Cuttlebug.  I have joined the two bottom layers together with a red brad and added some red pearls to finish.

Once again, thanks for looking but please don't forget to pop over to DYSU and see all the other DT's creations - they are amazing.  Perhaps...... you may even join in the fun!!

Hugs and happy crafting
