Cupcake Birthday

Hello All!

Boy, this has been a busy week at our house. My son is on to his 6th day of Kindergarten. It's been quite the adjustment for all of us. I can't wait until we find a new normal routine! Hope you're all having good week.

I have a card to share that I made for my sister for her birthday. I used an image I received from my blogging friend and fellow design team member, Emily. She made the cutest cards a while back using these images. She knew how much I liked them and she was kind enough to share some. Aren't they sweet! :)

I colored this image with watercolor pencils and an aquapainter. Then added crystal effects and glitter to create some textured frosting. The image is matted using my scalloped rectangle Nestabilities. The colors are Regal Rose and Rose Red. I embellished the card with wide grosgrain ribbon and silver hodgepodge, a paper flower and a dew drop, and finally a white gel pen. The other stamps used on this card are from Itty Bitty Backgrounds and Short and Sweet, both Stampin' Up! sets.

Thanks for visiting today, have a good day! Happy Stamping! :)
