Happy Labor Day!

Hello Friends! It's Labor Day Weekend, the last holiday of the Summer! I wish that it was also the last hot day of Summer, too, but I guess we can't have everything. I hope that all of you are doing something super fun this weekend.

My card today features another one of Meljen's Designs adorable cupcakes. This one is the Patriotic Cupcake. I decided not to put a sentiment on it, so I could use it for any Red, White and Blue holiday. I thought it was fitting to share this card now, in honor of Labor Day. I am entering my card in two challenges this week. The "Anything Goes" challenge at Meljen's Designs and the Friday Sketch challenge at Papercraft Planet.

The sketch from PCP is pretty plain. I didn't deviate from it much.


I used a lot of tiny twinkles on this one! Isn't this image darling! I love the rocket candles and the little sparklers on the side. And of course, I had to bling it up even more with glitter.

Here is a close-up of all that sparkley goodness.The twinkles are showing up orange on my monitor. I hope they look red on yours.




And I finished the inside as well.





 That's it for now. Thank you for visiting! I appreciate it. Have a wonderful weekend.
