At long last I have made another card! I'm afraid I make the simplest sketches - I seem to have to make a symetrical card - or it does not feel right to me! I went really brave and cut the dsp in half - for a real out there card for me!;) I will make about another 4 or 5 of these -and I assure you I will ground the image with a dark pink, rather than chocolate as I have on this image. I put Ranger Glossy Accents on the hair band, the wings and the cherry on the top of the cupcake. Thanks for looking!

A very sweet card!! Love this OA dp and how you've, so daringly : ) cut it in half for the sketch! The glossy accents just shine too (my bottle dried up, time for a new one!) Colored beautifully too!!
By the way, what do like to be called - a) Deb b) Deborah c) Debbie d) Debzi e) None of the above f) fill in the blank______________

Ooh, Debzi....that IQ was on overload with this adorable card. I like that split card layout and just look at the glossy accents. The image is too cute and I WANT a cupcake....now. Oh, what a sweet tooth I have. Anyway, your paper is just precious for this sweet girl. Super terrific for a birthday card.
BTW, I had to come in a back door to get to your card. I cleaned my cache as you suggested but it appears it is my search bar that won't carry me anywhere. Oh, that was just a ploy to keep me from Debz's card. But I'm here and I love it.

I love how you did that glossy stuff on the headband and cherry -looks fabulous. I like your sketch a lot - I may case it - seriously. I want that adorable image - it is precious. Great card - we are so glad you did it. This would work for the Teaparty too - you should add it - one of the things to bring is cupcakes.

and with a cherry on top! Ms. Debzi 333 I dare say your little lady here has a big head ... just like someone else I know. Plus her hair so reminds me of your coiffure. Very big. Okay, no more kidding. I normally dont like those big heads but I have to say you've created a really sweet image with just perfect coloring. I think cut the dp adds some really great dimension. She's really darling!

Oh Debzi I am enjoying that cupcake like there is no tomorrow....being on this diet down right sucks!!! I am drinking in the delicious taste of that buttercream frosting and that special crunch of the sugar sprinkles when they hit your teeth when taking a bite. Oh the sweetness of the cherry as it hits the roof of my mouth. See what you have gone and done!!!
This is just so adorable. If you sent it to me....I would eat it...lol It's absolutely luscious. That image is precious and I love the cute layout with the pretty paper. Great Job!!!

Oh Deborah, lady with the freshly and always shaven legs, is that kind of like wearing clean underwear cause you just never know what is going to happen?!! hehe This card is darling! I LOVE that head band and cherry with the glossy accents. If I did that, I would probably smudge it because I never give that stuff time to dry.....again hehe. Way to go out of your comfort zone and cut that dp right down the middle. This is just the perfect sketch for the most adorable card. WOWZERS! TFS :0) P. S....don't send the card to Gingerbeary8, she wants to EAT it!

This is SO sweet, Debzi!! Great colors, and I love how you used the glossy accents. And that October Afternoon DP is wonderful. I think she must be bringing that cupcake to me--I've never met a cupcake that I didn't like!! A completely fun card. :)

Debzi this is just too adorable! Love your sketch, *she* is as sweet as pie, and I (like Mutnik) could take a lesson from you to slow down because the CE would never have this effect in my hands. Precious, perfect card.
