Birthday Cupcake

Happy Sunday, all! Hope you're having a good weekend. I have the day off tomorrow for President's Day, so I will be a busy little bee in my craft room. Hoping to catch up on some DT work as well as whip up a few things for some pub calls. I'm getting behind with all the work I'm doing on my school's musical...three-hour rehearsals 4 nights a week! Forgive me if I don't make it around to your blog as often as I usually do.

It's rainy here today...perfect for crafting...so I got busy with a few challenges. I combined Papertrey's Make It Monday #2 (use a vellum sentiment strip) with JUGS72 (aqua, melon, & kraft) & the Totally Stampalicious challenge to add glitter or bling. I glittered the frosting on my cupcake...I figure if you can't eat it, at least I can make it pretty to look at, right?

Hope you like it!

Stamps: Cupcake Collection, Simple Sentiments (PTI)
Paper: Berry Sorbet, Cool Caribbean, PTI kraft & white, white vellum
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Cool Caribbean, Adirondack Espresso
Accessories: Nestabilities circles, PTI buttons, Kaisercraft pearls
