Birthday Cupcakes

     I love cupcakes as birthday cakes!  It saves having to cut a large cake, makes decorating so much easier, and eliminates all the fights between kids (and adults?) over who gets the frosting flower.  lol

     This cupcake is the image from Limited Runs for their Progressive Challenge this month.

I used the sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

     I used ProMarkers to color the cupcake, then cut it with a die from Spellbinders.  The background started as a left over scrap of pink CS which was cut with my Lattice die (Spellbinders.)  The five narrow strips of dp are also scraps.

     The sentiment was printed, hand cut, and inked on the edges.   I found two scraps of pink ribbon in my stash basket, used one to wrap around the card front and the other one to tie a bow.  I really hope I can get more of that ribbon because I really like the way it looks and it was a dream working with it.
