Do I Smell B-day Cake?

November marks the one year anniversary since Colleen turned Through the Craft Room Door over to Cara so in addition to our weekly Anything Goes Challenges, we are going to have four mini blog hops with multiple sponsors. Team A is starting this week with these sponsors:

Little Claire - PRIZE: choice of 3 images from the store

Repeat Impressions - PRIZE: $25 gift card to store

TupeloDesignsLLC - PRIZE: A new release Lawn Fawn Stamp with coordinating Die, a Lawn Fawn Ink Pad, and a hand crafted Ink Blending Tool (this item started it all and he's famous for them) 

My Whimsical Little World - $10.00 gift card to store
Karen <<===YOU ARE HERE

I used an adorable image from My Whimsical Little World called Cupcake Wishes.  I used chalk and pencil to color the elephant, glitter gel pens to color the cupcakes and crown.  Both sentiments are from Create With TLC.  The paper is from a DCWV paper pack called Nana's Kitchen Stack.  I added some purple string pearls, purple gems and purple ribbon.  I then drew stitching around the image and sentiment.


Now, make sure you head on over to Cara's blog!  Best of luck in your hop and thanks for leaving us all some love!
