East Coast Wasabi Cupcake!

I was so excited to finally get to play along with Taylor's Cupcake Challenge this week. (TECCC30) After that small earthquake we had a few weeks ago, I was putting off cleaning up my stamp room and finding my desk, but I finally had some free time last night and today to play along. The color combination is Wasabi, Real Red, and Tempting Turquoise, using shimmer white for the main cupcake image. The bottom layer of the card is Textured Wasabi... I love that stuff, and I've sure been guilty of "hoarding it." The stamp set is "Hey There Cupcake" from Stampendous (bought from eclecticPaperie), and one of the stamps from "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" is used on the Tempting Turquoise layer to tie it into the "dot" theme. The designer paper is "East Coast Prep" just retired from Stampin Up! The cupcake liner is paper pieced, and the Stampin Up word window punch is also used to punch through the DP paper to stamp "Happy Birthday" on the Real Red layer. And finally, a splash of WildWasabi striped ribbon on the bottom, some star dust stickles on the cupcake and stardust pen on the candle flames, some white brads, white pen touch opaque pen for the faux stitching, and there you go! A preppy, simple birthday card fit for a family member, male or female, or a special friend! Hope you have had a relaxing fun weekend. GO USA!!! 110 medals. Oh My Goodness. That's amazing!

Love your card! And looks like we live within a few hours of each other... I'm just south of you! Glad to hear you were "OK" through that earthquake. Sounds like a mess to clean up, though?
