Hi there!  I made this card today for a few challenges.  I'm not one to usually combine challenges (it just never works out that way for me), but today it did.  Here are the challenges I made my card for:

WT363- Splitcoast Ways to use it challenge- found here.  This week's challenge was to use buttons.
Clean & Simple FTL sketch challenge- found here.
Stampin' Up! Only Blog challenge- found here.  We were to create birthday cards.

At first I wasn't quite sure if I liked my card, but then my 3 year old girl came over to me and said, "What pretty cupcakes, Mommy.  Are they for me?" I guess that's all I needed to hear so now I like it....LOL.

I used a combination of the Create a Cupcake stamp set and my Cupcake builder punch to make the cupcakes.  The tops of all the cupcakes are punched using dsp (spice cake- it's retired now, but I love this paper).  The chocolate bottoms of my cupcakes are stamped and punched out and the middle (vanilla) cupcake was punched using very vanilla card stock and then I ran it through my crimper.  My middle vanilla, cupcake is adhered onto my card using dimensionals.  And my entire cupcake panel was also adhered using dimensionals.

My background was embossed using the perfect polka dots embossing folder and my big shot.  My sentiment is from the create a cupcake stamp set and for my embellishment I decided to use a chocolate chip button with a small piece of white twine tied through it.

Well, that's about it for today!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
