Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone! Today is my day at My Craft Spot blog to post, and I'm so excited to share.  I love cupcakes and thought this cupcake would be perfect for a set of *sweet* birthday cards. These cards will be nice to either have on hand or give as a gift.
The*4 You* is from the Tiny Tags  stamp set by My Craft Spot.
The tag is cut from the Tiny Tags metal dies set. I tied my cute tag
with some spring green Traditional bakers twine.
I stamped *Sweet Birhday wishes* from the Birthday Wishes set.
The cupcake is from the Create a Criter cartridge cut at 3.35"
and fits perfectly on a 5X5 card base. I chose a bright red
paper for the cherry and glossy accented it up for a realistic looking
marschino cherry. Yum! I also popped the cupcake up with
deminsionals and rounded the corners with a 1/2 inch corner rounder.
I used Papertrey Ink cardstock for my papers. I'm REALLY liking the
Aqua Mist-Sweet Blush paper combination. The Aqua Mist color I used for the
cupcake wrapper and the Sweet Blush was used for the background. One of my
new favorites are the Enamel Dots by My Minds Eye. They're colorful and don't
*stick up* like brads--plus you don't have to mess with a shank.
I hope you enjoyed this set of birthday cards. Enjoy the rest of your week. :)
