…MaKE a WiSH...

I LoVED this week's CoLoR THRoWDowN challenge pallet…ummm…do I say that EVeRY week?

Well…this combo was just GoRGeouS!  

Since I'm trying to build up the birthday stash…I went that route...

All card stock is Papertrey and the patterned paper is an AuTheNtiQUE set I picked up a few years ago…I've been doing GReaT using up paper from the stash lately…It's funny how well I remember 90% of what I have even though there is a RiDiCuLouS amount of paper in my cubby.  I used PTI mat stack 3 and then added a rosette to the top…

The rosette makes the card a little bulky, but since it's a smaller sized card, I just planned to put it into a larger sized envelope so there was no frustration or squishing…

I almost never stamp anything inside of my cards because I like to write a note inside and I tend to be a little long-winded :)

I stamped the cupcake base in PTi EnchanTeD EVeNinG and heat embossed the top with white filigree powder… 

The cream panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug numbers folder…I use that a lot on birthday cards :)

…and here's my envelope…I think I like the cupcake better with SPRinG RaiN "frosting"…but it wouldn't have worked on that blue polka dot paper.

Thanks for Looking!
HAve an AMaZiNG weekend!
