Birthday Cupcakes

The current Seize the Birthday challenge is 'Cupcakes or Candy'.  I don't have any suitable stamps or dies, but found a card with cupcakes in my upcycling box which was perfect for my card.  I'm also entering the Allsorts 'Birthday Wishes' and the Memory Box 'Tickled Pink' challenges.


Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk
Die: Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday'
Card: Marianne Design 'Snow Paper', pink pearl and silver mirri
Other: Upcycled birthday card

I die cut the Grand Happy Birthday from both the Snow Paper (which is a pinkish glitter card) and pink pearl card, these were trimmed and inlaid onto a piece of silver mirri card before being attached to the card front.   I fussy cut the cupcakes from the upcycled birthday card and attached them to the lower edge of the card with Pinflair glue.
