SSSC73 & Cupcake Inspiration Challenge - Happy Birthday

Hi all,

How's your Sunday going?  I had a nice relaxing one doing two of my favorite things, stamping and watching the Padres on TV.  Unfortunately, the Padres lost the game today, but they are still in first place in the NL West, being one game up on the Dodgers.

Since today's Sunday, I made a card that works for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and for the new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. For the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, I used the colors in the picture as my card inspiration. I had a hard time deciding if the flowers were pink or dark peach. I went with peach. I found some great patterned paper to represent the chocolate cake and white cupcake paper, and used a green ribbon to pull in the green of the leaves.  To make the stamped cake look iced, I mixed mint green and baby blue liquid pearls.  The rest of the image was colored with Copics and very small rhinestones were glued in centers of the flowers.

Stamps: Happy Moments, a 2010 SU sale-A-bration set
Card stock: SU chocolate chip, tangerine tango, very vanilla
Patterned paper: Bo Bunny Kitchen Spice
Ink: Memento rich cocoa, Copics
Other: classic circle and scalloped circle nesties, SU certainly celery ribbon, Material Girl peach button, linen thread, yellow Stickles, light pink rhinestones, SU word window punch, and dimensionals

Have a great work week all,
