Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Hello blog friends! Want to see some color? This card has got COLOR, lol. I think it's got every color under the sun, thanks to this Indie Bloom paper pad. I don't often use such bold colors, but when I do it makes me happy.
This card features a purple cupcake (grape icing, maybe?) which I personally have never seen, but think someone should make one! I used the 'Never too old for Cupcakes' stamp, colored with Copics and colored pencils. 

I did some hand stitching around the borders of both label die cuts. I think it adds just the right finishing touch!

How about those tiny little sentiment tags? I've seen this idea used many times, but was always too chicken to try it myself. Kind of neat though, and not as hard I thought it might be. 

The week is almost over, phew! Just two more days to go till the weekend. Thanks for dropping by!

Stamps: Lili of the Valley
Ink: Memento
Paper: Basic Grey, Core'dinations, Hammermill, Heavenly White card base
Tools & Accessories: Spellbinders Labels, PTI Bloom Builders dies/button, ribbon, Copic Sketch & Spica markers, embroidery floss
