Cupcake Lover's B-day Card

This birthday card started out as a Valentine card, but after I cut out the card base with the new scalloped Sizzix card die set, I remembered that I still hadn't made a B-day card for my sister whose birthday occurs before the 14th.  Ah, no problem......crafters love to improvise right?  The S.E.I. flowered paper works for both a Valentine or birthday card so it was simple trick to embellish with a cupcake sticker to make it perfect for a cupcake-loving-sister's birthday.
The candle on the cupcake is a Dress It Up shankless button that had to be cut to fit.  One of the dies from the Sizzix set was used to cut the parchment paper behind the cupcake and a rosette was made using the die from the Brenda Walton set.  The banner was cut using a Paper Smooches die and the words were rub-ons from my stash.  A bit of Mister Huey's gold spray was applied to the banner so it would match with the shimmer of the floral paper.
The Art Impression image was stamped on marker paper and colored with Copic pens.  Stickles was applied to the cupcake frosting and tiny silver balls sprinkled on.  The stamped saying is from the same Ai set.
Okay, I will get to making some real Valentine's Day cards and gifts soon; afterall Feb. 14th is just around the corner.  Hope you'll come back to see what I create for the sweethearts in my life.
