2 Sketches 4 You - Have A Sweet Birthday!

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope your weekend was awesome - mine was really nice - (more on that tomorrow) but I am still recovering from traveling and am amazed that it is already Monday! Isn't it crazy how fast time is flying?
Well, Monday brings another sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You and the sponsor this week is Sakura of America - who have an amazing variety of glaze, gelly, metallic and souffle pens! I love that they can write on dark cardstock and the flow is very smooth and easy. I used the glaze pens for my card for Kazan's lovely sketch #36 in which I created a birthday card for someone very special :) and my favorite part of the whole card was coloring in the cupcakes with the glaze pens:

Card Details:
Paper: blue cardstock is from Bazzill Basics and the DP is from stash
Stamps: For the Love of Cupcakes from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Rose Red from SU! and Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Sakura glaze pens
Accessories: Spellbinders, dimensionals, Hot pink with White dotted double edged ribbon from Taylored Expressions, measuring spoons from doodlebug designs, scalloped square punch cut in half for the edges

Its hard to show the glaziness of the glaze gel pens - so here are some more pics of close ups of the glaze pens:

here's another pic of the glaze pens on the cupcake:

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and I hope you get to play along with this week's sketch challenge!!

Happy Monday!
Sankari :)
