Birthday Cupcakes

Sometimes inspiration is just a catalog away! In the 2010-2011 Catalog and IDEA BOOK, page 130, you will find the card that gave me the inspiration for my card today. I didn't have the exact stamp sets, so I improvised, using Itty Bitty Bits and Fundamental Phrases.

I made my own pedestal (instead of stamping it) out of Early Espresso card stock, then matched the tiers using the same Dotted Scallop Ribbon border, which is cut in half for each tier. If you haven't used your Catalog and Idea book for inspiration, check it out. If you need a Catalog and Idea Book, you can add them to your Stampin' Up! order for 9.95 (122202) Use my website to place your order.

I love your comments, so please leave one!
