hoppy "B"day!

Mornin' hens! This week on my blog is gonna be "challenge" week, where each post will be entered into one or more challenges. Uh-oh, that means da CHICKEN has to THINK! Awwwwk! Smiley Oh, but challenges can make it fun too, right? Take for instance today's card... this card will be entered into THREE challenges!!
Am I GOOD or what? *snort*

For the first challenge, I followed the recipe at the Catered Crop!

Catered Crop follow button
This week's recipe includes the following ingredients:

Pattern Paper – Go Crazy with Patterns! Got it!
Colors – Anything Goes! Mix and match, try some black accents I did that too!
Stamps – Aprons, images from the kitchen or cupcakes Yup, cupcake's lookin' yummy!
Color Mediums – Prisma Pencils, pens (like Sharpies or Jelly Roll), black ink, distress inks Uh-huh, black ink & distress ink -check. check!
Embellishments – pearls, ribbon, rickrack Lovin' my orange rickrack!
Misc. Supplies – Puff Paints, Glossy Accents, ModPodge Hmmm? I think Stickles count!
Tools – border punches or die cuts (or use paper trims) Die cuts and then some, oh my!
Techniques – mixing patterns, coloring with Prisma pencils Oh yeah, did that too!
Theme – cooking or cupcakes Uh-huh!
Shapes – Squares Bunches of 'em!

Whew! So, as you can see, I used almost all the ingredients in the recipe, but you can use just one or as many as you'd like and whip up something totally different and totally yummy. Then link your project to the Catered Crop's FTR6 Challenge by March 3rd. The winner will receive a $30 gift certificate to Eat Cake Graphics! How AWESOME is that!

Ok, on to my second challenge which is Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 105. Here's her sketch:
