Cupcakes for Dad

Hi everyone,
Here it is day 13 for my challenge card a day for the year of 2012. Today I'm mixing it up with Freshly made sketches and The color throwdown. When I first saw the colors for the throwdown I thought those colors would work great for a fishing card for my dad's birthday. I tried, I failed. So it's cupcakes instead. Here are the two challenges I'm using for this card.




I used Baja Breeze instead of Sky Blue, because that's as close as I could get and it works . The stamp sets I used were Crazy For Cupcakes and Teeny Tiny Wishes. All my background pieces are embossed using Cuddlebug folders.Markers were used to color in the image. The flower embossed border in the middle needed something so I punched some little dots out using a 1/4" hole punch. I  then window punched my  sentiment. 


I hope you like my card. I know my dad will, as long as I remember to sign and date it. That really bugs him. Thank you for stopping by and please come back again.
HAPPY STAMPING
