Summer Birthday

It is no secret among my family and friends, I do love sweets. All kinds--ice cream, cupcakes, pie. So for a summer birthday, I went with strips of DP from SU with all those sweets on them. The background paper is called Crisp Cantaloupe but I see it as Orange Sherbet.
The cupcake stamp is an old, old one but still a favorite. I colored the cupcake paper with pencils, made sprinkle dots with star gel pens and then coated the frosting with clear glitter glue. To create shine like one of those maraschino cheeries, I coated the cherry with Crystal Effects. The sentiment is also from SU. Inside I added another cherry to accent the computer made sentiment

Tuesday Morning Sketches provided the inspiration. Check them out. There are prizes being given away this week.
