HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CUPCAKE

Boy, am I rusty! It took me forever to come up with this design! I've GOT to get back in practice! I used to be able to whip out a much more original and elaborate card design much speedier than this one!

One thing hasn't changed -- Karen Giron's fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges! I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #149 as my inspiration.

Paper: Just Add Cake DP, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Early Espresso, Versamark
Embellishments: Blushing Bride 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon, Basic Pearl Jewel
Tools: Cupcake Builder, Word Window Punch, Triple Flower Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Circle Cutter, Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals
