Hello Cupcake, 2019 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Brations, Birthday Card

Only a month left and this little gem retires.  I LOVE using this cupcake image.  It's such a perfect card for adults and children.  I found this card here, but I did change it a little.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Gorgeous Grape.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White.  I stamped the words from the "Hello Cupcake" set using Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo and Pool Party ink.  Then I taped it to the card base.

I cut a 3" x 4" piece of Basic Black card stock and die cut the scalloped oval from the center. And if I were smart, I would have cut the stitched oval from the Whisper White piece but the brain isn't in full gear today!  Fortunately I had a scrap piece.  I die cut the ovals and set them aside.  I cut a 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack "How Sweet It Is" from the new 2019 Occasions catalog.  I taped it to the Basic Black layer and I taped those layers to the Whisper White piece. 

I stamped the frosting using Melon Mambo ink.  I set it aside to dry a bit before I fussy cut it out.  I stamped the cupcake bottom using Gorgeous Grape ink.  Then I stamped the cake part using Crumb Cake ink.  I taped the two ovals together and then taped them to the DSP. 

I fussy cut the frosting and I set it in place using Dimensinals.  When I look at it on the screen, I think I should have added some "sprinkles" to the frosting.  It needs something.  But other than that I do like the card.
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
