sprinkled pink !!

stamps: remembering your birthday, a cherry on top (hostess) from stampin' up!
inks: tim holtz distress ink pads (brushed corduroy, spun sugar worn lipstick & tattered rose) also need the markers (brushed corduroy & worn lipstick)
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, 6x4" kraft card blank plus kraft cardstock 
extras: bakers twine(I used stampin' up! calypso coral, because it was the best match for this card), a pink button (this one is papermania), I also used the stamp-a-ma-jig.

I started by cutting a mat for the front of my card, I inked this using a pale pink then glued it down. I cut the white layer next, ready for stamping onto. I used the distress markers (from tim holtz) to ink up sections of the stamp I wanted different colours, to add emphasis to some of the words in the sentiment. I then stamped the three cupcake wrappers in a row above and added the cupcake frosting tops using three different shades of pink ink pads, (the stamp-a-ma-jig was used to help line everything up.) I inked strips of card using the darker shade of pink and added these to my top white layer, placing one behind to create a thin border and one in front. I then wrapped bakers twine around the bottom pink panel and secured it at the back. I cut a small banner out of a scrap of kraft cardstock and added this to the topper. I knotted some more bakers twine through a pink button and glued it to the top of the banner. I added the topper to the card to complete.
for the inside of the card I simply cut a mat to size, in white digi cardstock and stamped my sentiment in centre using brown ink. for a special touch I added a cupcake at the bottom corner, by stamping the bun case in place then lining up the frosting top with the stamp-a-ma-jig.
