Birthday Wishes - DIC135

Hello all!!!   Another Thursday means another UDI Inspiration Challenge!!!

This is one of the cards we made at club this month and fits perfectly with the challenge!!!  I was recently in a birthday card swap and received a card like this.   I made some changes, of course, to make it my own, but it was the layout with the circles that caught my attention.

The card base is Peach Parfait, layered with Whisper White.  Only the bottom portion was put through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  The new, and fabulous, cupcake punch was used to create the cupcake.  The bottom was punched in Early Espresso after being embossed with the Square Lattice folder.  The topping was punched from the SAB dsp - Ice Cream Parlor.  And the cherry on top is punched with the new red glitter paper.  I think the cherry really does top off this cupcake!!  LOL!

Each of the circles are punched using the 1 1/4" circle punch, adhered together in a triangular shape and then put on the card using dimensionals.  The cupcake is then put on top of the circles with more dimensionals!  You know how much I love my dimensionals!!!

The ribbon and buttons are from the SAB Ice Cream Parlor buttons and ribbon pack.  The ribbon was placed just at the top of the embossed area.  Using another SAB set - So Happy For You - I stamped the birthday wishes in Peach Parfait.  Two of the buttons, topped with rhinestones, finish off the card.  Pretty easy and clean and simple for me!!

If you have a minute, check out the UDI Blog and play along!!

Happy Stamping!!!!
