A Pacman Themed Birthday Card for Allsorts Challenge - Celebrating 700 Challenges

Hello and welcome!

It's surely been a busy week in blog land with the cat lovers hop going on. I've only managed  to make 2 cards but that's better than 1 which I did last year. Maybe I'll sneak in some crafting time later today and join in one more time before the hop ends... But I don't usually get time to craft on Saturdays so we shall see...

There is another special occasion happening right now in blog land and that is  Allsorts' challenge 700th challenge! What an accomplishment! Huge congrats to our team leader Brenda for running the challenge so successfully over the many years! Of course we are celebrating with several fabulous prizes which you can see at the end of the post. Hopefully you will join in with us for your chance to win!

For my Celebration themed card I decided to make a "Pacman" type card, it's definitely not my typical card style but I think the recipient is going to love it and that's all that matters!

There are several Pacman card ideas on Pinterest and my card was inspired by a mix of several ideas with a different design and stamps. 

The cupcakes are part of a Penny Black sentiment set. They were stamped in different colors and fussy cut. The large cupcake is from Whimsy Stamps (Meljens Designs) but no longer available. Colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut. The yellow Pacman face was cut with a circle die and I cut a small triangle out of it, then added tiny googly eyes. "Happy" and "Birthday" are from a CTMH set I found at a thrift store and "Game On" is from a retired Whimsy Stamps sentiment set.

I added stardust stickles glitter for some sparkle on the cupcakes/candle. 

As promised, here are our prizes for the week - remember to have to join in at Allsorts challenge following our Celebration theme for a chance to win!
Prize 1: A mixed media bundle

Prize 2: Dies from Highlight Crafts

Prizes 3 & 4 (this lot will be split into two prizes)
