Birthday Cupcake

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is to use two patterned papers. I love patterned paper and have a ton of it, so I had fun with this challenge. But remember, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I used my favorite Cupcake stamp set from Avery Elle with matching dies, and paper from two different stacks. The cupcake frosting and flowers were colored with Copics. Nothing fancy here, a simple card, really! 

I'm also playing along with the cupcake theme at Inspired by all the Little Things. I didn't have cute little chicks to put on my cupcake, but I did have three yellow flowers! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Cupcakes (Avery Elle)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Lemon Chiffon, Green Apple (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Kitten Smitten (Doodlebug), Sunny Days Ahead (Echo Park)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Cupcakes Dies (Avery Elle), Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)
