Birthday cupcake

Hello everyone, I hope you've been keeping dry during these tremedous down pours we've been having in So. Cal. I'm not complaining for the much needed rain, but it's been too much. And it's been especially hard for the folks in the burn areas in Flintridge, La Canada... We're praying for you.
Well it's time for another post created with my new toy, the Spellbinder! Since we're still in time for Valentines, and my birthday is on February 1st. I wanted to use the "My minds eye -Beloved" designer paper for this creation too. It's just so pretty and versatile.

I started with a simple white cardstock for the base. Then I wanted to pop the colors of the designer paper with chocolate chip, real red, and groovy guava(discontinued). Once I had my starting piece I used my spellbinder to cut the scalloped edge circle for the base of my cupcake and sentiment.

Making the cupcake was fun. I wanted it have some dimension, so I stamped it first on the circle then I layered it with the different colors to match the designer paper. After I stuck my ribbon on with a strong adhesive, I layed the cupcake base on top for the finishing touch. Pretty cute, huh? I hope you like it and than you again for stopping by. Tooddles.
