I made this birthday card for my mom. The scalloped circle with sentiment is a printable stamp from The Cutting Cafe, the Birthday Fun set. Super simple--I just printed it out on the cardstock I wanted to use and hand cut it out! I sewed along the borders of each block of pp and then decided it needed a bit more. Since my hands weren't going to stitch any more, I doodled the border. :)
This layout was made for a challenge on scrapbook.com. It had to be a two page layout featuring something sweet with a primarily chocolate color scheme. The Cutting Cafe's Birthday Fun set was again the perfect match. I re-colored the scalloped circle to white and then resized the cupcake and cut it out. I used Stickles to put a border on the circle and to "color" in the cupcake. I love how it turned out! (This design is based on a layout in Scrapbook Trends magazine).
