Here is my take on Beate's sketch for this month. My card was very simple, but I'm happy with the results. I used Close to Cocoa and Baja Breeze ink with a blender pen to color the image of my cupcake platter from Crazy for Cupcakes (which is on special this month from Stampin Up!). I used Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze, and Whisper White card stock. And the red is from the hostess prints pack. I got out my new Sizzix Big shot, and our new Top Note Die (exclusive from Stampin Up!) and cut the top note in half. Then I just popped out three 1/4 circles using the punch and tied white taffeta ribbon around my Baja Breeze cs. LIke I said, very simple, but very cute IMO.
P.s. I also used that cute little birthday sayings set. At the moment I can't remember it's official name!
