Sprinkled with Fun!

I have a simple little birthday card to share today...featuring some of the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' stamps. I started by stamping the cupcake in the centre, then masked it before adding the cupcakes on either side. I coloured the frosting, hearts and flower using watercolour pencils, then paper pieced the cupcake cases using some polka dot papers from the 'Now & Then' pad by My Mind's Eye...adding some shading to the paper folds using a watercolour pencil. I used some Glamour Dust to make the frosting sparkly, then coated the cupcake toppers with some Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I doodled the border using a black gel pen.
