pink and brown birthday cupcake

Hello there blog friends!  Aren't you impressed that I've blogged every day so far this week?!  I tell you, it's been tough for me to get into a regular groove of crafting and blogging with a busy day job that's been keeping me occupied.  So, I thank you guys for still checking in with me! Yay!  It feels good to have caught up a little bit with life in general, that's for sure.  I'm going to enjoy it while I can.  Today's card share continues with the birthday card theme and the hybrid MDS/stamping technique.  As you can see, it's a simple and clean 2-tone card with a couple of button accents.  This is a great birthday card to have on hand - and with MDS, you can print out any cupcake colors to match your SU! cardstock.  Super easy peasy!  This pink is Pink Pirouette, which is a very soft and baby girlish pink. I added chunky glitter on my cupcake to give it that sugar-y goodness look!  Doesn't it look delectable?  I am also loving the little flower from the itty bitty punches set - it is just too cute. 
Hope you like it!  Here's the recipe for you:
