Birthday Cupcake

Here is a cupcake birthday card I made for a co-worker who is having a birthday next week. The cupcake and cherry are from the Home Decor cartridge and are cut at 3". I also cut the shadow at 3" using a brown card stock. The cupcake is cut from some Stampin Up patterned poka-dot paper and the cherry is cut on a scrap piece of hot pink paper. I used Crystal and Icicle Stickles to bling up the cupcake poka-dots and the cherry. The Birthday Wishes stamp is a clear stamp I had. I stamped in in Staz-on black in and put three little Skittles above the stamped image, I felt it needed something. The card is a standard A2 card made out of some white card stock, again that I had on had. The patterned background paper is from Die Cuts With a View paper pack and is also a scrap. I adhered the cupcake and cherry with some foam tape to pop it up from the card. I love the bright cheery colors and am pleased how it turned out.

This is the second card I made where I using my Gypsy, which I love. I am trying to get as much creative time in before I go back to work on Monday. I am about to enter my busy time of year at work so want to take advantage of this slower time now. Hope everyone had a great New Years. Thanks for looking.
