BIRTHDAY CUPCAKE CHALLENGE #44

You can tell I'm feeling better .... I stamped today!!! I stamped only one card and had to lay down afterwards, but it's progress! I have so many birthdays in November and December and am low on birthday cards so hopefully you'll be seeing lots of birthday cards posted here in the next couple of weeks!

For this card, I used Taylor VanBruggen's Cupcake Challenge #44. As you can see, I again used the Celebrate You image from Party Hearty that fits perfectly in the Scallop Circle Punch (love that!). The overall card size is 4 1/4" x 4 1/14", and the polka dot Sweet Always squares were punched with the 1 3/8" Square Punch. The gift image in the center of the medallion and the Pumpkin Pie CS panel are raised on Stampin' Dimensionals.
RECIPE
Stamps: Party Hearty
Paper: Sweet Always DP, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie Classic
Embellishments: Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, CM Custom Cutting System for Pumpkin Pie CS, 2" Circle, 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches, 1 3/8" Square Punch
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals
