happy birthday cupcake

Hello!  I've been a very bad stamper this week - this is the first card I've made since Sunday!  I have a sneaky suspicion next week will be the same since my daughter is on spring break - oh dear.

I used Clean & Simple's fall to layout 79 for this card, although I flipped the sketch so the image is on the left instead of the right.  It seemed to balance better that way.  I stamped the cupcake from Sprinkled with Love in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copics.  The sentiment is from For the Love of Cupcakes - seemed to fit perfectly and added a little piece of patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket - Material Girl.

Thanks for stopping by -
