Blog Hop







The challenge for this month's blog hop was to create any type of birthday card using at least one Papertrey product. When I went back to my work spot, I thought I was going to use Floral Frenzy on the card, but as you see, no flowers!! I did keep the chocolate card base that was originally planned, but that was it! On Monday, I picked up the DCWV 8x8 "Sweet" stack while I was in Muncie. I punched out some cupcakes with my fancy square punch. From another page, I cut strips of cupcakes. These have glitter with a great sparkle & shine! For the greeting, I used the "For Someone Special" from Mailbox Greetings.



I figured this card could be for a guy if needed...hey, guys love cupcakes too! I used some of the same elements on the inside, along with a "Happy Birthday" message. There is room on the kraft to sign my name and a short message.

Happy crafting!
Sharon
