Happy Cupcake to You!

Happy Birthday to all you New Year babies out there... here's a little something I came up with for a special B-day card. I bought these candles probably 2 years ago just to make a card like this... and well... I never did! Then I received this wonderful Stamp Set from Kitchen Sink Stamps; Happy Birthday Cupcake and BAM! Inspiration hit me!

Can you mail it? Probably not... BUT it would be perfect to give by hand. The scalloped focal image is framed by a cupcake sleeve... and it was a bit too large, so I trimmed it up with my coluzzle circle cutter.

Paper: Surprise Sprinkles by KI Memories (double sided), Tempting Turquoise, whisper white and a cupcake sleeve. Ink: Brilliance Platinum Planet, Pink Passion. Accessories: Turquoise polka-dot ribbon by unknown maker, Birthday candle, Iridescent ice EP.
