Cupcakes!

I had the idea for this card after checking out the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog.  I also knew I wanted to enter the Birthday Sundaes Challenge.  Think it turned out pretty well.  It was for sure a challenge to use the colors they picked.  So I used a Studio G card base, traced a scrap piece for the background. Then to make the top of the paper different, I took  a scalloped circle and traced it multiple times with my gelly roll pen.  The cupcakes are cut from my doodlecharms cricut cartridge, and then I dashed them with my gelly rolls.  Added a little twine and it was done.  Oh, and in the upper part, Happy birthday was hand written in, and it kinda blends, but it is there.

Your cupcakes are very cute, I really like the combination of colors you used.

Here are instructions for adding the blinkie:
To add the blinkie - copy the code and then go to the 'design' tab and click add a gadget, then choose html/javascript. Paste the code there and hit save. Hopefully this helps! You can email me direct if you need more help: birthdaysundaes@gmail.com

Thanks for playing along with Birthday Sundaes!
