Monkey 57 Birthday Challenge


I needed a birthday card and the a la Card Monkey challenge 57 was just right:

Monkey57 Birthday-001


Using the Crazy for Cupcakes set, I did some paper piecing and coated the entire cupcake top with Versamark and Iridescent Ice embossing powder for a nice sugar coating:


The bright colors in the Pawsitively Prints DP  make it a perfect choice for a happy card!  I punched some tiny “confetti”, and crimped and slivered some other matching DP into strips for some “streamers”:


These colors just make me smile!!!  Thanks for visiting today!
