Cupcake Day!

This card is based on Lauren's Saturday sketch from way back in December. I had a great creative streak during the first week of the new year. I had made 7 cards in 7 days and loved them all. This is not the norm for me at all. It is usually more like 1 card in 7 days. LOL!

Anyway, this was one of those cards. The stamps are from My Favorite Things. The pattern paper is Basic Grey - Bittersweet. LOVE IT! All of the other paper is PTI as is the ribbon. I spritzed the white layer under the cupcake with a SU marker and the spritzing tool. I also used SU marker so to color the Bridal confetti flower. I wasn't sure how the markers would dry on the flowers but they were fine and made a really cool looking texture on the flowers.

I even remembered to add some of the pattern paper to the inside of the card. I did not however remember to take a picture of the inside.

Hope your week is going well. It is cold here but if the weather reports come true it is about to get even colder. Brrrrr! Thinking warm, sunny, margarita-on-the-beach thoughts right now.

Love the cupcake! Looks so yummy! Love how you spritzed the bottom! And the bird card is just stunning! Love how you used the twine with it. It looks like it could be used in a birds nest! Love them all! And I could use some of that margarita on the beach right now!
