Springtime Cupcake

Hi everyone! How about a springy card today?....because I don't know about you, but I'm totally ready for winter to be over.



The layout is from SCS Sketch Challenge 215. I know, I'm a little behind on my sketch challenges...

The main image is from Taylor's Year of Sweets 2 set....one of my favorite SASI stamps! Look at the sweet expression on the cupcake's face. So cute! The sentiment is from A Year of Sweet Sentiments....SUCH a versatile set, definitely a must have! The curved mega rectangle nestabilities panel is up on Dimensionals and I added some pink shimmerz paint to the flowers, hearts, the cherry on top of the cuppie, and the butterfly. The green brads also have some sparkle on them.

On the inside of the card, I added a panel of the polka dotted Parisian Breeze DP and then layered a white curved mega rectangle nestabilities panel over top...same size as the one on the front.
