Matilda Cupcake Challenge

This card is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #42. I loved the layout on this one, especially the little squares!! I ran a Pumpkin strip through the Cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles folder, then I just punched out my squares. It matches the little hint of polka dots that you see on the bottom of Matilda's dress. My friend Anna sent me this image. She is so cute and fun to color. I colored her in the Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. She is highlighted with a Copic C1 marker and then I added Stardust Stickles to the frosting. This color combo is very unusual for me, but I love it. It bright and cheery - perfect for a birthday card! Thanks for stoppin' by. Have a wonderful day!

Stamps: Matilda Muffinbread (Stamping Bella), sentiment (TAC, retired GWP)
Paper: Taken with Teal, White, Pumpkin Pie, Scenic Route
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber
Other: Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder, Square punch, Koh-i-noor pencils, Stardust Stickles, C1 Copic marker, small oval punch, Hero Arts gems, chocolate satin ribbon
