Slimline Birthday

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fun Tic Tac Toe board for you:

Here is what I created for your inspiration:
I used the diagonal: use dimension, slimline card, use twine.  For my slimline card, I had the fun idea of masking my cupcakes and creating a cupcake tower.  I paper pieced the cupcake liners and it was pretty much finished!  I added the banners in a coordinating paper from the same paper pack as the liners.  After die cutting the main panel with a brand new slimline die from Kat Scrappiness, I watered down some brown gelato and flicked it onto the panel followed by some shimmer mist flicks.
I masked the sentiment so I could stamp it on the banner, tied on some twine and added it to the cupcake tower.  All of that was adhered with foam tape for the dimension and I finished it all off with some sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.

Oh Heather - just now getting around to comments, and I truly don't know how I missed your post last week, truly an oversight on my part. I love this idea, love the slim line card, the masking - well just every thing about it. And the cupcakes looks yummy.
