The Perfect Bait and TECC65...

It's another Cupcake Challenge, though I've used these fabulous sketches in the past for cards without entering. When I saw this week's sketch, I immediately thought of a sweet little stamp that I've been hoping to use. The twist is that I turned Taylor's sketch upside down! Also, I wanted this to be a Birthday card, and, as it is a cupcake challenge, I thought, what better bait than a cupcake? I didn't have one small enough, so I had to draw my own (Yikes!) The inside of the card reads '...to wish you a Happy Birthday!' For a little glow, I dipped the fish in a little VersaMark Dazzle and glossed up the bubbles with some Glossy Accent.
