Pink and Purple Birthday Card


I've had this Hero Arts cupcake image in my stash for a long time and decided it was time to make a card with it. I made a herringbone background with strips of purple/pink papers; then die cut that panel and the card base with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. The tag was made with a SU! punch, and I pierced the top using a SU! piercing template before adding the dsp layers. I paper pieced the cupcake wrapper and added glitter to the frosting along with some glossy accents to the cherry on top. The sentiment is from SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes. I added a snippet of ribbon to the top to finish this birthday card.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

As per normal your paper piecing job is beautiful. This cupcake really does look good enough to eat. That cherry on the top is exceptional with the Glossy Accents. I don't think I've ever seen a cherry on a card before that looked so real. Have a wonderful day. We got snow last night but turning to rain this morning.
