Mmmmmm! Cupcakes! I LOVE cupcakes. They are just the right size - not too much cake - not too little. But of course that part doesn't matter for me - because I eat one right after the other! LOL!

I made this card for one of my nieces. She turned 9 this year and she LOVES the color pink. The cardbase is Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip - theirs is the ONLY colored cardstock I use because of the high quality. I will apologize for the color tint to the photo - my chocolate brown ribbon & paper looks black - couldn't fix it in the photo which is too bad because the card is much richer looking in real life (IRL).
The image, colored with Copics, is from a set by Inkadinkadoo appropriately titled: CUPCAKES. The Designer Paper is also from Stampin'Up! - it is one of the designs from the SENDING LOVE papers in the current Occasions Mini catalog.

My favorite part: the button that makes the cherry on top! Isn't that cute? I'd love to take credit for the idea - but I actually saw it on a card somewhere and stored away the idea for future use.

This was another simple layout - nothing spectacular in design - but all the elements made it a card I was pleased to share.
Totally unrelated to cardmaking is this next photo. I took it last night at sunset and thought it was so pretty I wanted to share it will all of you.

That's all for today - thanks for stopping in.

I love the pink and Chocolate Brown!
Very cute card.
Great shot of the deer by the water at sunset too.
It is always a pleasure to view your work.
