Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

First of all, I am so excited to announce that I am the Guest Designer for Mark's Finest Papers, Simple Salutations Challenge on SpeedyTV.  I so hope you will join; it's free and lots of fun.  The challenge this week is "Anything Goes".

I had loads of fun making this card for The Princess this week.  I'm not sure if it is her sunny disposition or the great weather we were having but I was reaching for my brightest papers, the one's I love to buy and am often to scared to try and use.  The cupcake and the sentiment is a retired set from Mark's Finest Papers, Birthday Cupcake.  I stamped it on the blue so that I wouldn't loose the cherry stem.  Secondly, I stamped it again on a white piece of card stock.  The frosting was made using the Faux Frosting tutorial you can find here.  It added some great dimension.  Finally I paper pieced the cupcake wrapping.  I love how that turned out.

The layout came from Splitcoaststampers' Sketch Challenge #425.

Now I'm off to finish the pirate ship invitations for DS's birthday party.  Wish me luck!
