CIC61 - Birthday Wishes

Greetings from the "Soggy" Pacific Northwest!  I'm telling you it's been a rainy spring here  and quite frankly I am so ready for it to be over with and for summer weather to start.  I can almost feel my feet getting webs between the toes (quack, quack) due to all the rain we've had!    But enough complaining (it doesn't change the weather any) and on to today's Cupcake Inspiration Card. 
Seriously don't these cupcakes look divine!  I love how dainty they look.  I was inspired by the soft colors (and yes if you look very closely you'll see some cool blue in the photo) so I chose to work with the colors, the flowers and the dots for my card.
              Once again I chose my new stamp set, (Very Square) from Mint Motif and available at (I {heart} Paper)  I stamped the square pattern in Cool Caribbean and So Saffron Ink on Whisper White card stock and then added a border using my new, Daisy Scallop punch from EK Success.  I layered this to Whisper White cs embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder.  My sentiment is from an old SU set (Elegant Greetings) and was stamped with Cool Caribbean ink.  I added 3 So Saffron flowers and used Silver Pearls (Annabelle Stamps) for the centers.  I love how this one turned out.

It's heading off in today's mail for a friend who is celebrating a birthday on Friday.

Speaking of birthdays....here's a sneak peek at a card that I'm sending to a young boy who will be turning 10 soon.  I hope he likes it. Come back tomorrow to see the full card.
