Always in need of a birthday card so I used the Stamplorations sketch

Simon Says Stamp theme - Happy Easter and/or Sweet Treats

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

And the TIME OUT Challenge - Birthday with optional twist of make it masculine

I obviously did not go masculine!  Punched out squares of orange polka dot dp and rounded the two opposite corners on each.  Added white circles, but it looked too plain, so added the faux stitching with a black gel pen.  Added 2 strips of washing tape, lining them up, to the white layer.  The cupcakes are an old Sizzix die colored with Touch Twin markers and then stamped with the heart sprinkles from Gina K's Square Pegs.  Stamped the sentiment, also from Gina K in Versafine Onyx.  The card base is Gina K Pure Luxury Mango.

Thanks for taking a look!
