Cupcakes-Amy Tan Plus One

So are you enjoying the sketchathon?  One of my favorite sketches so far lead me to create this page using the Amy Tan Plus One collection from American Crafts.

When I saw the grid design, I immediately thought of the mini washi tape that is available:

I used it to create the grid on the page and to outline the top and bottom edges in yellow.

The cupcake was from an old Crate Paper line, and the glitter triangles are from Studio Calico (I think there is one package of these left in the store!  Click HERE.).  I created a faux tag by outlining a tag shape with a pen, punching a hole, and then cutting a slit at the end of the tag to thread the twine through.

Be sure to join in on the fun with the Sketch AThon in the forums!
