Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #301

I feel like the rabbit from Alice In Wonderland running around saying, "I'm late!".  Like everyone else a ton is going on in our lives and on the one hand I know I am totally blessed to have so much, but on the other hand, I really like to nap...

As many of you know, I am a very proud member of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and hate it when I am late with my submissions (or miss them entirely), and well this one is a little late!  But super cute!

Using the Something Fierce Paper Collection and our beautiful 2-toned cardstock this card came together quickly.  I wanted this card to be bright, clean and simple, oh and more "boy"! I think I achieved it although with clean and simple cards I struggle with wanting to add distressing and extra ink and extra embellishments and...

The cupcake and sentiment are from the Years of Sweetness (D1827) stamp set, and the cupcake shape can be found on the Cricut Artbooking Collection (#M45678). I used the retired Chevron embossing folder and a few White Dots to finish off my card.  Ink and cardstock colours used are Lemon, Raspberry, Willow,  Bluebird, and Ballerina.

Thank you for stopping by, and I genuinely appreciate your comments, I hope I have inspired you to come to play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

I am also going to submit this card to Heart2HeartChallenges... their current challenge is "Love of Color" and I think this card qualifies!

And Color My Heart Color Dare #327 is doing a TicTacToe with the Something Fierce Paper Collection, so I am going to submit my card to them as well.  I also want to thank Colour My Heart as they voted my submission to Color Dare #324 as their "Emerald Award Winner."

Happy Crafting!
