It's a New Year...

and Tuesday as well, which means another Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch challenge.
I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve!
My husband and I attended a party last night, with friends from church...
We are a loud group, full of chatter, laughter and cheer and as always, good eats too!
Baked Potato Bar, BUNCO and a Champagne toast at Midnight.
What a perfect way to ring in the New Year, surrounded by people you love and care about.
Happy New Year to all my wonderful followers!
May each of you and your families be filled with joy in 2013
Now on with sketch #99 challenge...
and my card using sketch #99 as my inspiration...
Isn't she just the cutest? 
My image is from The Digi Garden, and you can find Ursula's Cupcake with a Cherry on top HERE
I printed her out and colored her with the following Copic markers:
B00, B02, BG01, BG93, C-1, C-3, E00, E02, E21, E35, RV21, RV23, RV29, RV32, YR00
I cut out the cupcake icing and pieced it on top with mounting tape
Designer Paper:  My Minds Eye 6 x 6 paper pad - Fine & Dandy Girl
Scalloped border - Cricut cartridge - Just Because Cards, page 42 <Truck-s> at 4-1/2" trimmed
Scalloped circle - Cricut cartridge - Elegant Edges, page 23 <Sclop1-s> 1-1/2"
Sentiment from Jaded Blossom - Sweet Birthday Wishes:
which is part of the Birthday Kit (December 2012) and can be found HERE
I stamped that with black ink on to pink cardstock and used a 1" circle punch
Finishing touches:  tiny adhesive pearls and some white hi-lights using a gel pen
Well thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my take on the sketch.
Please go to Try Stampin' on Tuesday to check out the rest of the Design Teams wonderful creations.
I know you'll be inspired and I truly hope you will play along with us this week.
