Cupcake, anyone?

Wow ... it's been a while.  I'm sorry about that. I've been doing a bit of crafting, but very little has been paper crafting.  

I do have a card to share today, though. :) 

A good friend of mine has a birthday this week.  I wanted to use this image because I find it so freakin' cute. :) 

Want a cupcake??

I don't think you can tell it very well in the picture at all, but the cherry and the white layer on the cupcake has a glaze on it, the sprinkles sparkle, and her wings are all glittery.  I totally love the birthday cake embossing folder as the background, too.  Super fun, I think.  The flowers are metal, and the pearl in the middle was a brad.  I put it on too late, but just cut the metal prongs off and used a glue dot to adhere to the page.  Baker's twine is used on the side (it's limeade, I believe).  The card base is black, and a white mat is on the inside for my message.

The image is by Penny Black - one of the Mimi images.  

I hope you're having a fantastic summer. 

Have a beautiful Monday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow.
