Stacked Cupcake Birthday

Happy New Year everyone!!! Here's to a wonderful start for your best year ever!!

Here's another birthday card today. I thought this would be a nice card for February birthdays since the patterned paper has reds, pinks and hearts. The two punched hearts and pink sequins also add to the look. I used Karen Lockhart's Best Cupcakes stamp that has the sentiment right there with it. I colored the image with Copic markers and then cut it out with Spellbinder's Long Rectangle dies. I love how these dies perfectly frame the more narrow and taller images. I finished up the focal image with a little snipper of Papertrey satin ribbon. An easy card that shows off a lot of that fun patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket.

The beginning of the new year is bringing some great things. Coming soon:

Spellbinder's 5 Year Anniversary Blog Party...new products, sneak peeks, free dies

Becky Higgin's 365 Album...yep, I ordered this morning and can't wait to get started

I would have sent you an email but couldn't find the link. I would love it if you could add an email subscription service (not the same as the RSS feed you already have) like feedburner or feedblitz. That way any subscribers get emails when you add new content and we will never miss your posts! Thanks rebeccacell at gmail dot com
