This is one of nine cards I'll be doing this week for Taylored Expression's celebration of a Year of Cupcake Challenges! YAY! Yes, I know 9 cards is a tall order when you work full time & have a teething 7 1/2 month old at home & a husband that works nights... BUT THAT'S WHY IT'S A CHALLENGE, RIGHT?
Anyway, I used Stampin' Up!'s Party Hearty stamp set for this card. The DSP is also Stampin' Up!, Tangerine Tango Patterns. I inked the cupcake in Only Orange & Gable Green and the candle in Tangerine Tango & Apricot Appeal... then I shaded them in the same colors of SU! Watercolor Crayon. I added some faux stitching with a Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen, punched out the DSP with a Martha Stewart scalloped border punch, and added a couple Making Memories cute little button brads.
One down and 8 to go!
