Enjoy! Seize the Cupcake...

Hi ya!

It seems that this week is getting away from me...we are in full swing of activities around here, so my crafty time is happening in spurts.

I have a cute little scalloped circle card today.
I started with Barely Banana textured cardstock and created a scalloped circle card using the large scallop circle in my Big Shot. I adhered my blue gingham checked patterned paper to the scalloped circle card base. A coordinating yellow Labels 4 die cut was added to mat my paper pieced focal image and sentiments which are from Wilson Designs Strawberry Lemonade.  A banner was created and strung diagonally adding buttons to complete the card.
The inside was decorated to coordinate with the card front. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Wilson Designs Scoot Away With Me.

I found inspiration for this card at The Shabby Tea Room : Birthday Bash inspiration photo. You also had to use a cupcake on your card. I was inspired by the banners on one of the cupcakes. :-))))
I am also joining in the fun at My Craft Spot: Inside and Out and Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge...jumping on the swings using up some more scraps on this tasty treat. 
So more happy news my Handmade flower card was an Honorable Mention Cup of Tea Last week at The Shabby Tea Room.  So delighted and honored! Thank you!
So, that's it for me....we are off and running!
