Sweet Little Thing...

Cupcakes are all the rage. And, let's be honest --- who can resist them? Whenever one of my students has a birthday you can bet they will be laden down with dozens of cupcakes baked by their thoughtful friends.

This card is inspired by the happiness that comes along with a sweet little cupcake all dressed up in dots and a handmade bow.

The sentiment was cut out of paper and then mounted with rhinestones to make another charming embellishment for this card.

The Creative Details:

Colors: Copic Markers in pale cherry pink R11, tender pink RV13, sand E33, crimson R27, mignonette YG11, pale cobalt green YG41
