Gotta Have a Card to go With the Lip Gloss!

Well, a birthday card with cupcakes on it would be a perfect match for the cupcake lip balm that I'm going to give my niece. I'm not sure what else I'm going to give her. Probably some money so she can get what she needs.

But I did need to make her a birthday card. Her birthday is April 2nd and I'm SHOCKED that I'm actually ready for it!! I have 2 more birthdays in April and with any luck I can get the cards made and be on top of things in that department!! Isn't it a good feeling to be on top of things? I wish that it was that way in all aspects of my life!! It could get boring but I'd at least like to try it out and make that statement later!!! LOL

Anyway onto this card. I used the Stampin' Up! "Crazy for Cupcakes" set. I have used that set a lot and just LOVE it!!! On the background I used the "Cupcakes" wheel. It's so cute!!! And the decorative paper is scrap pieces from the Sale-a-Bration set. It's such pretty paper!!

I colored in the cupcakes with markers from the Soft and Subtle group. And for around the cupcakes and stand I used Bordering Blue and a blender pen. I sponged the edges and put it on a black layer. I used the SplitCoastStampers Card Sketch (SC) #91. I have almost all of the sketches in an album and I just go through it and find a sketch that the stamp I'm holding will fit in and I go from there. Tomorrow a new sketch will be released and of course I will be playing with that one!!! I actually got my "work" done this afternoon so I have time to play with the sketch when it comes out tonight!!!

The words were done on the computer. I mentioned in the last post that I printed out a whole sheet of them. I know it doesn't mean I need to make Birthday cards until the sheet is used up!!! LOL But I REALLY do need a birthday card

I think I should bake my niece some cupcakes for her birthday since there is this cupcake theme going on here!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
