Springtime Birthday



Ahhh, springtime, temps are going up in the 60's today! Here's a card to celebrate the new season which starts this friday!

I was inspired by three challenges...Secret Crafter Challenge~cake, (that always inspires me!) Crafty Muse~change of season and the sketch is from Card Patterns! I know ya can't see it but the wings are glittered! The image is paper pieced and a download from Crafty Muse.

It's such a beautiful day out but I just rec'd some new rubbah in the mail....so what to do??? Stamp or go outside???? hmmmm...I'll get back to you on that! I hope you have a beautiful day! Blessings!

materials used: papers: K&co, image: CraftyMuse, swirls: Autumn Leaves, sentiment:Hero Arts, rhinestones: Kaiser

Oooohhh this is just the cutest!!! I love the beautiful papers and the way that you paper pieced the cupcake! What a great idea and I love the layout! This is one of my favorites! You are right, the colors really remind me of spring! I don't know what I would do! it would be a tough call. Maybe I would stamp outside! LOL!
