Pile on the Sweets!

When I first saw this pile of cupcakes in the new Sweet Celebration set by Taylored Expressions, I giggled and thought, "that poor bottom cupcake, getting all squished under that pile of sweets!".

Well, I just had to make a card using those thoughts. I used my Karen Foster Snap Stamps to create the sentiment along the bottom. The inside of the cards simply states " because it's your birthday!"

The cupcakes are stamped in Black Soot Distress Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I stamped once on the image panel and then again on a scrap piece of cardstock, cut it out and used foam tape to give some dimension. You know, I tend to color and cut alot don't I? LOL I guess it relaxes me.

I added glitter around the edge of the image panel and then matted it on brown and then pink.

The yummy ribbon (American Crafts) is tied through a notch in the image panel.

Be sure and check out what the rest of the Bakers Dozen (Taylor's design team) is up to. You'll find their links over on the side.

I hope you're having a yummy day!
