(pink) limelight birthday card

i love thursdays! at least, i love EVERY OTHER thursday...and vastly prefer the ones which contain one of mandy's gorgeous LIMELIGHT sketches, like this one:

i went really literal this time. also really REALLLLLLLLLLY pink!!! in fact, anyone who is prone to migraines or epilepsy may want to don protective eyewear before viewing my card, ok?! :)


(patterned paper: echo park, heidi grace, sei; glossy white cardstock: ranger; ribbon & bling: michaels; rub-on: american crafts; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape; other: sewing machine, maya road mini acrylic album used as cupcake template)

told ya--i went a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiittle wild with the pink patterns--i apologize if it was more than your retinas could stand, lol! but see, it started with that ribbon from michaels' dollar spot... then i added in a bunch of echo park papers... a paper-pieced cupcake seemed like a nice focal point, what with the cool ribbon and all... what can i say? sometimes "pink-n-girly" is a slippery slope!!! :) :) :)

so now ♥YOU♥ want to play, right?! ok, here's what to do:

**Use the sketch provided to make a BIRTHDAY CARD!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC070.
**Post a comment with a link to your card on Mandy's blog by midnight of Sunday, April 3rd.
**Of course there'll be a lovely PRIZE awarded randomly to one lucky participant, who'll be announced on Mandy's blog Monday!


  1. when it comes to pink--the more the better, lauren:) and your cupcake ribbon is the CUTEST thing!

  2. The PINK is perfect! I really like that you went all pink too, because it makes it even better.

  3. Oh, I didn't even notice the pink (LOL!) Your sewing is so PERFECT. The machine I bought last fall turned out to be a lemon. The gave me a new one, but it was a dud too. My grandma is giving me her old machine, but I am having it oiled and cleaned (it is about 25yo, I think). I hope I can stitch like you, my dear!

  4. Such a fun card! Loving the bling swirls on the cupcake!

  5. love all the all the other girly girls loving pink too :)

  6. oo how fabulously sweet, lauren! love the PINK and the adorable cupcake with strawberry! what a cheerful card that definitely makes me happy. thanks for sharing! *hugs* steph :)

  7. Oh, I LOOOOOOOVE the pink cupcakes! :) So happy!
