Cupcake birthday

Welcome, thank you for calling in.

Today I am sharing a 'flashback' image from McMahon Five Designs called 

I started by printing the image and sentiment on a piece of paper from a Prima 6x6 stack called Romantique.  

I  ran Crystal Stickles over the image details.

Made a row of flowers from some red paper I had on hand, and sprayed them with silver spray paint, which decided to flake off as I 'scrunched' them.

It still looked as though it needed something more, so I added these 'cocktail stars' - one of the first things I bought when I started card making some 10 years ago - so glad paper craft supplies don't 'go off'!!
I used them randomly around the cupcake and in a row under the sentiment to give it some focus.

Mounted the whole onto a red card base and I was done.

I am linking this to:
Thanks for calling by - may your day be blessed.

  5. Beautiful! I'm loving those gorgeous flowers, too!

  6. This is gorgeous! A real digital card! I would never have thought of printing the image and sentiment out like that. It just looks beautiful. xx

  7. Very nice card! Our challenge this month is to use 3 exactly like items and the flowers are different sizes in your card. But it looks like the brads in the middle of the flowers are the same so I will ok your entry. Thanks for joyning the challenge at HeidisHobbystuggu.

  8. Oooh Maxine! What a gorgeous sparkly card! Those flowers are wonderful... and I think it looks great how the paint has flaked a bit! I agree it's just as well craft stuff doesn't go off - it's great digging up something previously unloved that's exactly what you needed!
