A quick post

Hi Guys,

It was my friend Ang's birthday yesterday (the only one of her family not to have a birthday in May!). Ang was on a cupcake thing a few years ago and I still equate her and cupcakes together, and can't seem to get away from it. Thus I went searching through Splitcoast looking for a nice cupcake card (and let me tell you, there are sooo many cupcake cards on splitcoast). I finally found one that I really liked here and figured I could make it look a little more 'grown-up'.

Here is my attempt:

I didn't have the 'On Board' shape that Joanna used in her original so decided to use a Nestie shape instead. I replaced 'First Edition' DSP with a piece from "Newsprint' and used a different SU sentiment stamp (from 'Bring on the Cake'). I used very vanilla for the circle and ribbon as it went better with the 'Newsprint' DSP. Mush as I love the antique brads I thought it would sit to high on my bulky knot, so left it off. I added some pearls to my cupcake. I am really happy with how it turned out, even if i do say so myself LOL. I hope Ang likes it, as she is a card maker too.

Fi x

I love it! And if Ang is a fellow card maker, she will love it as well, card makers know the effort and love that goes into making a card :)
