Cuppy Birthday!

Or at least Cuppy is telling someone to have a happy birthday!

On a personal note, I've been thinking about my birthday a lot this year. It isn't until July 30, but man... turning 30 ... I'm trying to decide if I feel old. But I don't want to think about it tonight, I want to think about this lil card!

Challenge 1 - find the blog HERE - sketch (I love these sketches! I love how simple they are. You can doll them up as much as you want, but they're so simple and lovely that you can follow exactly and still have a super cute card. If you don't participate - you should. I also won one of their challenges once, which is how I got this stamped image - in my lovely goody bag!)

Challenge 2 - find the blog HERE - inspiration. How fun! I love the big cupcake platters. I'm not a huge eater of cupcakes (personal preference sweetwise... straight sugar - like taffy or licorice ... or straight chocolate - like dove) but I LOVE cupcakey cards and crafts and other fun stuff. Anyhow, I used the cupcakes as inspiration in my image and in my lovely DCWV papers, also used the colors for inspiration... the red, the blues, the white. I couldn't decide at first whether to use some puffy paint (I know that is not what it is being called nowadays, but that's what it is in my head) for white fluffy icing ~or~ if I should go sparkley with the stickles... I decided since the background was white that I didn't need any more so I went sparkly.

ENJOY (something sweet today, calorie free Wednesday - cuz I said so)
