"Hope You Can Cling To!" Challenge, Curtain Call Color Challenge and SCS Card Sketch 301 Challenge

OMG.......I'm tackling 3 challenges for one card!!!  That's definitely a record for little ole me!  I really think I'm getting better and better with my skills and making everything sort of "fit."  It's a pretty cool feeling, actually.

The THREE challenges I entered this card into are:  The Hope You Can Cling To! - Birthdays are a Piece of Cake Challenge; The Curtain Call Color Challenge and the SCS 302 Sketch Challenge.

 The card sketch and color challenges were very fun to work with.  I loved combining these two!

In the Hope You Can Cling To! - Birthdays are a Piece of Cake Challenge the rules were to:  to make a Birthday Card that includes my very most favorite stamping technique...PAPER PIECING!  Now, I've never done paper piecing before so this was a bit challenging for me.  Perhaps it was the image I chose and that fact that the pieces were so small.......but, I did it.  For this paper piecing, I stamped the cake first on the white paper and then again on the patterned paper.  Next, I cut the layers of the cake out and glued it  together.  It turned out really nice, but it took me forever to cut out the icing pieces.
Here's a close-up of the paper piecing and the lovely BLING!!!
