SFF 040811 - Happy Birthday, Melinda!

Happy Friday everyone! And Happy Birthday to Melinda!! Melinda is one of the super talented design team members for Sketch Frenzy Friday and today is her birthday! AND she created this week's awesome sketch!! Take a look:

And here is what I did with her sketch:
Since it is Melinda's birthday, I wanted to make a birthday card for her (and for anyone else who might be celebrating today). I hope you all are not sick of cupcakes. I find them extra yummy - lol! I started with a card base of Early Espresso and ran the front of my card through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. The Whisper White piece has three strips of Whisper White attached to it with Chocolate Chip brads. The strips have words from the Fundamental Phrases stamped in Early Espresso on them. Then I glued it to the card. I attached a piece of Daffodil Delight to a piece of Early Espresso and popped it up on the Whisper White. The cupcake bottom was stamped in Early Espresso and the top in Regal Rose and then punched out and popped up. Then I stamped the flower in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive markers and cut it out and glue dotted it onto the cupcake with a basic rhinestone in the center. There you have it!
