Sweet Birthday Greeting

Freshly Made Sketch #47 was perfect for this sweet birthday card!

I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge and its coordinating stamp set to cut the cupcake at 2" (p 69, Accents 1 & 2). The Birthday Girl Sentiment was cut at 1" using low speed.

The "icing" on the cupcake was created by folding and hot gluing the new Rosette Ribbon back and forth along the top (inspired by Tresa Black). There is so much dimension without a lot of bulk or heaviness with this ribbon!

Of course every cupcake needs sprinkles, right??!! I topped this cupcake off with Red, Pink, and Purple Sparkles for some extra girly fun! I think any girl would love this card! I know I would!!
