Cupcake Party, Sky is the Limit, Stampin Up

Hello, my Stampin’ friends! How was your holiday weekend? Ours was great! The weather here in Michigan has been the best! I love Michigan summers! No matter what you are looking for, you will get it, just not two days in a row! That’s truly is what I love about it though. There is something for everybody! It was difficult to find a minute in my craft room but once I did, it was really fun making this card. The challenge this week is to use eyelets or brads. They don’t have to be “retro” though, just the stamp set you use needs to be more than a year old. I found these cute brads and immediately pulled out my Cupcake Party stamp set, a stamp set that was introduced in the 2014-15 Annual Catalog and just retired. I have used it before and really like it! The fact that it has a coordinating punch really adds to the possibilities. You know me, I just can’t resist coordinating products!! The sentiment is from Sky is the Limit. The font is just gorgeous and I think it goes really well with this card.
