Sweet Shop Birthday

"Bring on the Cake", what an appropriate sentiment to pair with the Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper.  This paper coordinates with all five 2011-2013 In Colors, and is available until the end of April.

My card base is Soft Suede cardstock, and I added a layer of Calypso Coral with rounded edges, a strip of the Designer Paper, some Soft Suede Ribbon, and then the larger piece of Designer Paper .  To coordinate with the cupcakes in the paper, I added the larger cupcake.  Using the Create a Cupcake stamp set I stamped the bottom part of the cupcake in Calypso Coral ink and punched it out with the Cupcake Builder Punch, and the icing was punched out with Pool Party cardstock and layered with Crystal Effects to add a dimensional, lacquered look.  To highlight the cupcake, I cut two Label Framelits to layer over the Designer Paper.   I also added the appropriate bring on the cake sentiment to the bottom, and finished off the cupcake by adding a cherry the top!
