Now back to this week's challenge! This week the Simon Says DT got to play with some fabulous Lawn Fawn stamps! I chose this adorable birthday cake stamp called "Year One". I stamped it 3 times, in 3 different color inks and then paper pieced the cake back together. I then coated it with some Martha Stewart Fine White Glitter. The polka dots and striped paper are by Echo Park. It is called Candy Shoppe. The paper pack comes in many different colors.

To finish off my card, I also used a paper distresser, some Liquid Pearls and some Hero Arts Lace Ribbon.

Here is the awesome sketch~

And as always, the random winner of this challenge will win a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!
