Create a Cupcake Birthday

I thought about stamping and then punching the cupcake, but decided instead to just punch it out using coordinating colors of Designer Series Paper.  Now, how easy is that!

The card base is Old Olive cardstock, followed by a layer of Whisper White and a piece of Daffodil Delight Designer Paper from the Brights Paper Stack.  Some Daffodil Delight 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain was added to the center of these layers before I added some more coordinating squares.  A few embellishments and punches dress up the squares, and some pearls make the icing look so yummy.  I also brushed on a layer of Illuminate Top Coat before adding the pearls to give the icing some sparkle, (sorry it doesn't show up on the picture.)
