Cupcake Birthday

Spent the morning buried in my wee crafting corner, working on a card for a couple of challenges. The first challenge is over at Funky Fairy and had to be something girly. Well what could be more girly than pink. The layout came from the second challenge, Sketch and Stash.

One of the rules of the challenge over at Funky Fairy is that you must use a Funky Fairy download. I decided that I would use everything from there, well apart from the brads. The papers and images come from the Cupcake Crazy and Just a Bit ranges. Resized the images and papers to get the components for the layout. For the cupcake decoupage, I cropped and resized one of the cupcake frames to a suitable size and then made three copies. The bottom layer being all three cupcakes, the second layer two cupcakes and the top layer a single cupcake. Apart from the very pale pink mat, all the components were mounted using foam pads.

With all the challenges I enter I try to make a card for someone on my birthday list and this one is no different. This one will soon be winging its way to my great-niece, Abbie.

Thanks for popping by.
