Sweet Birthday Card

For our family, August and September are loaded with birthdays.  I made this card for someone's birthday this month.  I decided to make an easel card since I haven't made one in a while.  I found the patterned paper at Michaels.  It's two-sided.  The little cupcake came from Michaels and is from Recollections.  I decided to put an action wobble on the back of the cupcake.  I used the  Cardz TV Stamp set "Make A Wish" for all of the sentiments.   On the sides of the cupcake I used two balloon brads.  On the corners I used my favorite EK Success corner punch and added some bling.  For the SWEET! sentiment I placed a toothpick behind it.  I embossed the pink paper on the bottom with a Sizzix birthday set.  For the white mat, I used a Spellbinder's die.  The ink is from Memento and is called Rose Bud.

Well I hope you all are having a wonderful week!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would love to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,
(The Queen)
