Nothing says birthday celebration like cupcakes. Today I have a fun birthday card for Send A Smile 4 Kids using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

I found the cupcake paper at Hobby Lobby and had a scrap of brown polka dots that just matched the design in the paper. The sentiment is Inkakinkadoo. I think the font looks a bit like kids printing. I punched out one of the cupcakes and secured that to a punched scallop and then popped it up with foam tape. I added Wink of Stella to make the frosting sparkle.
And of course I had to decorate the inside with a fussy cut cupcake from the DP.
And happy dance here, tomorrow I am escaping the cold winter weather with a week in Puerto Rico. If you don't hear from me for awhile, you'll know I decided to stay until spring! I wish!!


  1. Super cute card! I really love how you decorated the inside. You're a lucky lady to be heading to Puerto Rico. Sounds heavenly! I'm sitting here with a jacket on (INSIDE my house) and a blanket on my lap trying to stay warm. It's waaaaaaay below zero outside. Brrrr. Have fun on your holiday.

  2. What a fun birthday card! This is what all birthday cards should be...cheerful! Great design! Thanks for playing along with my sketch at FMS this week.

  3. Oh, fun, I can just picture you in the sunshine, Donna! I wouldn't blame you if you didn't come back! But I would miss your sweet card art!! You have me at polka dots every time, so I'm really over the moon with this delight featuring both cupcakes and polka dots!! Hugs, Darnell
