Just Us Girls 120 color...Seize the Cupcake!

note:  Last chance to enter for my My Minds Eye paper drawing. I'll pick a winner after this weekend...don't miss out!

Hey Just Us Girls fans!  This week is a fabulous color challenge of red, white and pink!  I decided to use it as inspiration for a sweet treat of a card...the cupcake card cut file from Kelleigh Ratzlaff!  If you want to see examples of other ways I have used this cut file check out this post, this post, this post, and this post.  You can't really go wrong dressing up a cupcake shaped card!

I limited the red in my card to the pop of the heart shaped gem "cherry" on top and the fun birthday banner I stamped using sentiment stamps from Wilson Designs Strawberry Lemonade and a birthday set from Papertrey Ink.  I used a toothpick to wrap the flag and paper streamers around before I planted it behind the heart shaped gem.  Fabric paints continue to be my favorite "frosting" for these cards.

Swiss dot embossed white paper is like frosting with built in "sprinkles"!

If you are looking for sparkle and shine, be sure and check out what the rest of the girls did this week.....
