I have some upcoming birthdays on my Stampin' Up! team in September, so I made sure to include some birthday cards in my stamping this weekend. I picked a favorite, the Sweet Cupcake stamp set and the matching Thinlits dies. The Match the Sketch challenge #140 was perfect for the design, and I picked the TGIF #70 colour combo, thinking a pinkish cupcake would be yummy.
The sentiment reads, "Blow out the candles" and I had to create the first part with the Labeler Alphabet stamp set in order to be able to use the word die-cut from the Cupcake Cutouts Thinlits dies. The Sweet Sugarplum glitter ribbon comes from the glitter ribbon pack sold in the Holidays catalogue. I just love those ribbons! They look great used flat on the card (here, glued on with Tear 'n Tape) of tied in a knot or bow. Speaking of items from the Holidays catalogue, the Sweet Sugarplum sequins also come from the Fancy Frost Sequins pack (HC, page 37).
