more {CUPCAKES!}

Hey there!  I've got more cupcakes for you today.  This time, I've got a rainbow variety, courtesy of the handy dandy MDS!  I printed out a sheet of cupcakes on Whisper White cardstock in a rainbow of colors - these are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, and Certainly Celery, which happened to match the Island Oasis DSP, too!  I say "happened to match" because I hadn't previously planned to pair it with the DSP, I just did a bunch of colors so that I could make a variety of cards! Wanna see the full card:  Here you go:

I used the new Cherry Cobbler cardstock as the base, and I really love its rich and luscious red color!  It's a little deeper than the Real Red, but it compliments it nicely.  For my label, I used the other flower punch in the Itty Bitty Punch set.  These really are so cute and add a nice touch to your card project.  I sponged the edges of my label with Creamy Caramel to soften it up a bit and give it a little aged look.  If you've noticed, I've been doing a lot of sponging with Creamy Caramel on my projects lately, to soften the stark white and give the projects some depth.  For the strips behind my "Happy Birthday" label, I used the excess strips from the Eyelet Border punch scraps, so  there was minimal waste of supplies in making this card! Hope you like the card share!  here's the recipe for you.
