Mouse & Cupcake Birthday Card

I got a chance to play along with the Designed2Delight digi stamp challenge again this week.  It's been a long time since I was able to get in on the fun.  Each week that you play along, you get a free digi stamp on Friday to use for the next challenge.  This week is the Cupcake Mouse.  Here is the card I came up with:
The "Party" stamp is from Studio G, the dragonfly is from my ages old stash.  The background paper is DCWV "Nana's Kids" stack.  I used Gypsy Wanderings to cut out the digi stamp in the cupcake shape.  I cut it at 3.5" and the shadow layer at 3.75" The shadow cut of the cupcake is pearlized paper from Colorbok.  The cute cupcake ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

I colored the picture first with colored pencils, then filled the "icing" with light pink glitter glue.  After it dried, I added dark pink glitter glue for the "sprinkles" and a small gem on her little flower. 

The inside is cut from Lacy Labels.  I used my Gypsy to make it longer to fit the page, and I cut some of the cirles from the scrap piece left from the front to complete the look.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

We finally got some rain and things have cooled off and greened up a little bit.  We are so very thankful!!  Hoping our friends and family to the south get rain soon, too.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like the card.  Have a wonderful day!
