Hey Everyone! This is a card that I made for my DD Amy. If you click on the picture, you can see the details so much more clearer. This has been one of my favorite cards that I have every done. So of course I would save it for Amy. I used the Designer Series Fall Flowers for the background paper. SU's Soft Sky ribbon and Soft Sky Card Stock for the Nestabilities Scallops. The cupcake came from Studio G Clear Stamps, which I got in a dollar bin at A.C. Moore. I used my Soft Sky Classic Ink and a blender pen to color the base of the cupcake and Liquid Pearls for the icing on the cake. Tiny acrylic rhinestones top the candle. A Jesse James button was glued to the bow.
I think that is about it. I have got to get my self in the mood for cleaning this house...that's hard to do when all you wanna do is stamp and play. I hope you all have a great day :)

I saw this card in person and I can tell you it is the cutest ever. The cupcake icing looked real enough to eat with you using the Liquid Pearls. Soft, pretty colors. I know DD just loved it and all that you do for her.
