I was saving this post because the card was for my SIL's birthday which was just the other day!

I always have so much fun creating for her. She's so appreciative and interested in what I do. It makes the entire process THAT much more fun!!

I've been dying to use this tiny chipboard clipboard forever!! I inked it up with craft ink (Brilliance - Pearlescent Lime) and then doused it in extra thick embossing powder and hit it with my heat gun. It came out super glossy and fun! I then stamped the cupcake and glittered up the heart and used my glossy accents to make the frosting extra shiny. I paper pieced the liner cup to add some funky color and pattern. I stacked it all on top of a felt flower and sheer peach ribbon which I'd sewn to the card. The paper is from SU! I love the color combo and that's what started the inspiration for this card. The sentiment inside is from PTI's limited anniversay edition set Everyday Classics...which I received free from PTI - on my birthday to boot!! It's a fantastic set and SO generous of PTI!!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous start to the weekend! My poor hubby is working today so I'm puttering around the house while the kids have a lazy start to the day and then outside soon as the sun just started drying us out here in the NE!!
