Sketch Frenzy Friday Challenge

I was stuck without an idea in my head yesterday, so I looked for a challenge & found this one:  Sketch Frenzy Friday!

It gave me the idea to get started, and I was pleased with the outcome.

IMG_4567The colors are very cheerful & I love the image from Sketched Birthday!

  • Colors:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight (4 1/8 X 5 3/8), Crushed Curry, Island Indigo

I’m not sure what flavor cake this is, but it looks good to me!  How about guava cake with lilikoi butter frosting!!

Here’s the inside:


I’ve been asked to have a class this Saturday, April 19, from 10am – noon, and this will be one of the cards featured.  4 cards (with matching envelopes) for $10 or FREE with $25 order placed that day.  I can’t seem to narrow down the cards to make, so I’ll have 5 choices & you can choose 4.

Please RSVP in reply box at bottom of post if you’d like to attend!

Tomorrow I’ll post another card we’ll be making, so stay tuned…

Thanks for stopping by,



Birthday in a Box!

This Card-in-a-Box might be my favorite so far!

Createwithcheryl Bday BoxThe Birthday Basics DSP is perfect for this!  So bright & happy!  There are so many images to choose from.  Balloons, candles, numbers, party hats…

Createwithcheryl Bday Box 7I decided to make my cake from scratch!  Here’s the recipe:  Bottom layer 1 3/4 X 1;  middle 1 1/4 X 1;  top 7/8 X 1.  Used my corner rounder for the tops & scallop trim border punch for the frosting on the bottom layer.  I just glued them on a 1/2 X 2 1/4 scrap paper.  The candles?  From the Cupcake Punch!!  Caution:  Use as little glue as possible to avoid sticky fingers!

Createwithcheryl Bday Box 5If you can guess the punches I used to make the balloon & post the comment on my blog, I’ll send you a card!  Hint:  I used 2 punches.

Createwithcheryl Bday Box 11This punch comes from Label Love and coordinates with the Artisan Label Punch.  To make the contrast in the back, I just punched one in Summer Starfruit, cut it down the middle, & stuck it on.

Createwithcheryl Bday Box 7The banners & party hats are from Sketched Birthday.  Actually, I’m planning to make another Birthday Card-in-a-Box using more from that set!
