Strawberry cupcake for birthday card DT project no 438 PPCC blog

The delicious looking strawberry cupcake image is from Little Blue Button Stamps, the prize sponsor for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges blog #438th weekly reveal!

The following paper scanned photos are partial sets/pads that I picked in mid-June to focus on to 'bash' from my stash. I added these papers into my 2019 pile for the 100 Pattern Paper Challenge group found on Facebook. And these same papers were for the June Paper Pad Madness at Bash Your Scrapbook Stash group also found on Facebook. 

I used a lighter tone pink marbled cardstock from this Colorbok partial pad for the card base 5" x 7" and a small section of the blue as a 2nd background for the cupcake image:

The mulberry patterned paper on the far right seen in the photo below was used for background of the cupcake image (small section):

From the 6" square partial pad I used 1 sheet of the overall cupcake patterned paper trimmed down to 4.75" wide x 6" long:

The pink marbleized half moon cardstock section (Colorbok) was leftover piece from month or two ago:

Navy blue ribbon was criss-crossed under the half circle sentiment message to add more blue tones to repeat from the blueberries. As were the little blue acrylic photo corner triangles and the blue heart sticker.

Most of the cardstocks and patterned papers had their edges inked. Black ink stamp pad and the sentiment and cake stamps are from Hampton Art. Watercolor markers were used to color the digital image provided by Little Blue Button Stamps for design team member usage for #438 at PPCC blog.
Other challenge blogs and Facebook groups where this card will be shared=
a. 100 PPC on FB= pictured paper photos added to my 2019 stack that I want to eliminate this year!

b. BYSS on FB= mentioned earlier; I'm trying to bash some partial sets/pads of papers and even though that challenge technically ended on June 30th, I'm determined to keep going until I can use everything up!

c. PPPDTC/Paper, Paper, Paper, & Design Team Calls group on FB= sharing site for crafting bloggers

d. Seize the Birthday

e. Crafty Sentiments Designs blog= theme: add a sentiment

Didn't this card come together wonderfully!?!??!!! The range of blues and pinks with neutrals of black and white keep it fresh and festive.

More design team blog commitments will be coming in the next 2-6 days, otherwise I would like to get some scrapbooking completed but we shall see how the week unfolds. Today's a scorcher in the USA heartland! Stay cool!
