Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

Wow, it's been one of those days and so the card idea for you today is late. With the back-to-school meets end-of-summer rush upon me, I encourage you to follow my blog through one of the options in the left sidebar. That way you can be notified when the post is up each day and not have to stop by to check.
This is a card for yet another friend's August birthday. I have seen a few people use this cupcake stamp in ways beyond the intended thank you and thought I would give it a whirl.
Want to see the inside? I typically keep the inside of my cards rather simple and haven't decided if I will stamp a greeting one this one or just write my own message. Just so happens that the Party Hearty stamp set has a smaller cupcake that works perfectly. See why I keep using that set?
Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies I used to put this all together:
stamps: Simple Birthday Thanks, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Party Hearty (small cupcake), retired Canvas background
cardstock: melon mambo, craft, pretty in pink, whisper white, tea party designer series paper
ink: craft white, versamark, blush blossom and melon mambo for shading and message, close to cocoa for cherry stem
To jazz it up I covered the cherry in Crystal Effects and used some stick-on pearls (origin not known). The greeting is punched with the new, and very cool, Modern Label punch then mounted on a die cut label from the matchbox die.

Thanks so much for stopping in!

Glad you like them. Maybe I should have explained how this gal was just talking a few days ago about how pearls are all the rage again so I just had to use them!
