"Birthday Cupcake"

This was a fun card to make. I stamped the cupcake on the white paper then punched it out and colored the frosting in Orchid Opulence. Then I colored the cherry with red stickles. When the stickles dried, I covered the frosting and the cherry with diamond glaze. (crystal effects) Then I stamped the cupcake on the pattern paper and cut out the "wrapper" then glued it on the finished cupcake so the cupcake matches the background. Fun fun fun. Once again I didn't do a greeting. Partly because all my greetings are now retired, and partly because it is in the background. I love how it turned out. I think it is cute and it was so easy.
