Sweet Birthday

My friend who is a Stampin Up Demonstrator let me borrow a couple of her stamp sets. Today's card uses the set called Crazy For Cupcakes. Everytime I say that set name I hear the "Cuckoo for Coco Puffs" commercial in my head! LOL!
Anyway, I haven't had near enough time to play around with the sets I borrowed, but this is the first card I made with the cupcake set.

I really like this. I embossed the yellow cardstock with the Happy Birthday background embossing folder from Provocraft. The dotted paper is from Stampin Up and I stamped the cupcake holder on the back side of the paper and cut it out. Then the top part of the cupcake was stamped on the same yellow cardstock and cut out and mounted on top. I punched little cirlces from the dotted paper and glued them to the cupcake for sprinkles and then used stickles on it too.
My "Happy Birthday" at the bottom is a clear stamp from Stampendous and was stamped in a turquois ink, and I found the perfect color twill to use. In an effort to put something on the inside of my cards I stamped a verse that came with the set and then punched a flower out of the designer paper.

I had to return the sets to her, so for now this is the only card I had a chance to make with it this time. I do plan on borrowing it again in the near future and finding time to make some cards.

I hope you all have a fabulous day, and thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty! I like the twill tape on there, too, instead of a ribbon (nice touch).
