Birthday Cupcake

I'm back with a birthday card for my grandniece. I used another of the stamp sets that I won from Stamplorations - Sketched: Cupcake. I thought my sweet niece would love this image because she's into baking cupcakes lately.  She made some darling turkey cupcakes for Thanksgiving. She's across the country from us, so we only saw pictures - they were cute as can be.  Here's her card:

I embossed the card front with dots. After stamping the cupcake, I colored it with my Spectrum Noirs.  I cut out the cupcake and the sentiment (CTMH) using Spellbinders scalloped circle dies.  I dusted the dies with chalk after embossing them. The purple frosting has a coating of clear WOS - love it! I die cut the stars too. The cupcake and sentiment are popped up with foam tape. Then I added a gold sequin.

I'm entering a few challenges:  Addicted to CAS #53 - Dots; Less is More - Celebrations; and Stamplorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #24.  Here's the sketch at Stamplorations:

I've got two more birthday cards to I'll be back soon.
