Fancy a cupcake?

Hi everyone, remember me? I used to blog here on a regular basis but for no reason other than 'where did the day go' I've been a bit laxidaisical (is that a real word?) on the old blog posts lately :o)  So today I thought I must edit my photos and post about my new favourite card, well it has cupcakes on it what's not to love!

Unusually for me there was no involvement of my trusty printer whatsoever on this card. Regular followers will know I'm a great fan of knocking out sentiments using MS Word but this time I took the stamping approach and have to say am loving it. What I do need to do is build up a better collection of quality sentiments, I have nowhere near enough, cue shopping spree!

The cupcake stamp is from an Inkadinkdoo stamp set from America. The set is really good with sentiments and lots of different size/style of cupcakes. Stamped them onto some lovely K&Company papers and cut them out.
For the sprinkles I just used a quickie glue pen and some co-ordinating fine glitter from my stash.
 I think the stark contrast of the black numbers and rikrak ribbon work really well and sort of made the card pop.

The paper flowers are by Prima with pearl and black glossy cabouchons in the middle which I also used to top the cupcakes with .  I even cupcaked the envelope!

Hope you like it and promise not to leave it so long in between posts :o)
