Happy Happy Birthday!

 Here's a card inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. It's not exactly envelope friendly...but great for delivering in person.

"Frosting" is made from mulberry flowers and pom pom trim.
The cupcake is made from a half of Styrofoam ball in a mini cupcake wrapper.
I made it into an easel card.

Paris Theme Baby Plaque

A friend was needing a baby shower gift for her niece...The baby's room was pink and gray, but no definite theme. I suggested's where the project went from there.
Poodle is from Cricut cartridge "Create a Critter"

My friend liked it, but did think the poodle's sideways nose was a bit weird

I printed the chandelier (from ScrapNFonts) and Eiffel Tower (from Lettering Delights) in gray on metallic silver paper. I used Pink Pirouette Card stock from Stampin' Up! sponged with Victorian Velvet distress ink.

Cuppy Cake Box

I purchased Cupcake Box Set from My Scrap Chick recently. I thought it was just shaped like a cupcake, but found out that it has an insert to actually hold a, huh? Here's what I did with it for my first run through.

Notice the Circle insert in the base to hold a cupcake.

Small card to coordinate.
Card slides out of the base.

The only thing I would do different is choose papers that contrasted more. Although these are coordinating, they just don't "pop."

Itty Bitty Paper Piecing

I cut these out during the Summer Olympics, placed the pieces in muffin tins, which I covered with Glad PressNSeal wrap and then while watching during the evenings, I assembled them. They came out so cute, but boy did they have itty bitty pieces!

It is a huge challenge for me to break from the colors I see in the main photos. Not too adventurous, I guess. I lived a bit on the wild side in a few of these...even changing the blue suggestion for purple. I know, crazy, huh?
She's quite cute...background option #1.

Background option #2

This was my favorite, probably because I cut the image at a larger scale. Was a bit easier to work with.

Still haven't figured out the right base to put this one on. She reminds me of Madeline.
