I am thrilled with the trend towards cupcakes lately! You see them everywhere. In fashion, in art, and of course in stamping! There is something so irristable about them. They are so cute and small. This set from Stampin' Up! is called Big Bold Birthday. Besides cupcakes there is a balloon, shape for a present, blow horn, flower, heart, candle, bow, background dots, outline dots, a greeting that says "make a wish" and a greeting that says happy birthday over and over again. Of course I like the cupcake the best! The card on the left is a collaborative effort with my friend and downline, Kristina. We started out using some ideas from convention and took it from there.

ink: regal rose and chocolate chip for left card, groovy guava and brocade blue for the card on the right.
