Big Birthday Wishes with Paper Cupcakes

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Hazelnut

Happy Birthday to you! or perhaps it is your un-birthday! are you singing that song from 'Alice in Wonderland' now.... a very merry un-birthday... to You... to You! giggles! that is one of my most favorite scenes from that Disney classic.

So let's celebrate birthdays over at Paper Cupcakes! Please come join the challenge to create any kind of birthday project. I know I always try to keep a stash of birthday cards around because I never know when I am going to need one, or someone in the house is going to need one.

I love the look on this cute little ant's face. it just gives me the giggles every time I see it! Nina has such a fun assortment of images, and each week she gives away one free on the challenge blog. isn't that so nice? I used papers from the Basic Grey Life of the Party collection. The little cuppie was made with a piece of cardboard and some of the BG paper. lots of stickles were added to give that cupcake some birthday sparkle! I added a tiny bit of faux stitching, a Prima, some fun pom pom trim, & sentiment. ta da!

Please stop by the Paper Cupcakes challenge blog to say hello to all of the new Design Team members, like me!, and grab your cute freebie. then get busy making your card for the challenge! :)
