Paper Sweeties August Inspiration Challenge #34 - Happy Birthday

Woo hoo! It's party time at Paper Sweeties and do they have a lot of fun stuff lined up for you this month. "Why?" you ask. Paper Sweeties is turning three!

This month is chock full of inspiration, prizes, giveaways and a whole lot more! You're going to want to check the blog and like their Facebook page because, trust me, you don't want to miss out on any of these opportunities.

First, we're kicking it off with the monthly challenge, which is appropriately themed "Happy Birthday." Check out the sweet palette of pastels and the scrumptious cupcake inspiration photo.

 
The foundation of Paper Sweeties are the adorable SWEETIES paper dolls. Debbie, the owner, developed the concept for a line of dolls with outfits and accessories in June, 2010, and developed follow up sets with beautiful frames, labels, banners, sentiments and lovely images followed.  She officially launched Paper Sweeties in August, 2012.
 
Because of this, I'm featuring one of the dolls, Sophie, on my card. I always color Sophie's hair brown because it is the same color as my daughter's hair. :-) Sophie is wearing one of the many adorable outfits in the Paper Sweeties boutique.  I chose to embellish the card with stars because the cupcakes in the inspiration photo looked sort of like stars to me.
 
 
Please enjoy the rest of the hop. Your next stop is Cheryl Lea. The entire list is below. Have fun!!
