Birthday Cupcake

Birthday Cupcake

I finished this card sometime last week and here I am barely posting it. My unmounting venture is almost complete, I probably would have finished it today but I need to order more EZ Mount... good thing I have a local supplier that I 'm able to pick it up from. So far I've gone through 22 sheets of EZ Mount, thank goodness I'm almost done I have a sore thumb from peeling rubber.

On to the card, I made this card for the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, Challenge #90 Mulit-Fold. I used a Gate Fold, instructions can be found at SCS in Resources . I modified the folds to make my card larger than the instructions posted. After coloring the image with Prismacolor Pencils I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the frosting, when dried I added White Liquid Appliqué to create a yummy frosting look, before heating the LA I added gold micro beads to create sprinkles.

I'm going to change the inside greeting, once I took the photo I realized that I should have stamped it in brown and not black. The black stands out like a sore thumb! ;)

Thanks for visting ~ Jovi

  1. Okay...I have seen this little mousie waiting and waiting for his turn ! The colors on this card make for a great male type birthday card. I am thinking they would never notice the black vs brown, even though you and I would LOL! Thanks for sharing with us at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Sue K
