This is the birthday card I made for my daughter, Stephanie, when she turned 18 on Easter Sunday!  wow…not sure where the time has flown.  It was bascially a quick card to make – once I selected my Copic markers that is! I used the stamp set, Hey Cupcake from A Muse Studio.  The banner background is from the new paper pack, Everything’s Rosy in the new A Muse Studio Spring Accessories guide.  It’s a great assortment and I’ve been making cards like crazy with it.  From a left over scrap, I hand cut the mini banner and draped it over the cupcake to make it even more festive.  The DP is matted with a piece of Sky cardstock from A Muse Studio and matches the little flecks of blue in the paper perfectly.

The pink frosting went through a few transformations and took the longest.  It ended up a more purplish-pink to match the banner and then below you can see how I first added Diamond Glitter just on the top, didn’t like that, and then added Crystal Glaze (both are from A Muse Studio).  I love the end results.

I finished off the inside of the card with just a little more stamping using a sentiment from the Hey Cupcake stamp set.  The number 18 is from the A Muse Studio stamp set, Big Celebrations.  It really is big and fun for birthday cards!
