Bright Birthday



This cupcake card is a little bright. I really like the new Pacific Point In color but I'm still trying to find the color combos using it that I like the best. I used re-inkers to color in the cupcake so the color is especially intense. The sprinkles are silver and clear beads attached with crystal effects.

We are having our annual end of summer bbq today. We have been doing this for 18 years- since we got married. It's grown a bit over the years. Now the kids invite their friends too so we will have lots of neighbors, family, and friends here this afternoon. We still have a lot to do to get ready. We have 2 soccer games to fit in today too so it's going to be a busy one today. At least the weather is cooperating for us today. It's supposed to be sunny and 70. I'll take it!

Happy stamping!

Very cute!! I'm with you, Pacific Point is the most *challenging* color to work with. I think it's best like you did here, in small doses! Sounds like a fun, but busy weekend! Very ambitious of you! lol! Have fun!

I love the vibrant colors!! It is such a fun card and what a great idea to use the beads for sprinkles too!! I'm so with you on Pacific Point, it is a difficult color to tone down - like Angie says - in small doses it works! Hope you have a fabulous day with your BBQ!!!
