Courtney's Birthday Challenge

Libby has a lovely little blog which features her daughter, Courtney, and her challenges highlight all the cute clothes her daughter wears!  Libby has been participating in our CTD challenges, so I thought it was fair to check out hers!  Courtney has turned one and here is Libby's inspiration challenge #29 :

Courtney #1Isn't she a cutie?  And her shirt says it all:  "Cute as a cupcake"!  Don't you just want to give her a big hug?

So off to create a special little cupcake card.  SU's new hostess set, Darling Dots, has a sweet little cupcake image, so I got to work!





Just stamped & layered the cupcake a few times (can you see the Pink Passion peeking out from the Only Orange icing?), mounted it on some nesties and then on a CB'd 4 1/4" square card of PTI's Aqua Mist.  I added a strip of Sweet Always DP and looped on some orange ribbon that was  a RAK from somewhere. At the bottom is a CB diecut stamped with a sentiment from All Holidays.  Bling is from my stash, probably Michaels'!  This photo is rather bright, the colors were hard to capture!  But since Courtney's shirt was full of bright colors, I think this is like the little cherry on the cupcake--sweet & yummy!

Be sure to check out Libby's blog as she has BLOG CANDY!!!  Have a great Sunday -- it is beautiful here today, I am going to drag DH out for a walk!!!
