Seize the Birthday - Sweet Treats!

This time at Seize the Birthday we have an optional topping of Sweet Treats!  Of course, it's always "Anything Goes" as long as it's for a birthday, if you aren't interested in the topping.

Here's my card

What better stamp set to use for a Sweet Treats challenge than a stamp set from Gina K. Designs called Sweet Tweets!  I love the cupcake image with this set.  I colored the cupcake with Copic markers and applied Wink of Stella to the icing.  The patterned paper is from a set called Hootenanny from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black and embossed with GKD Fine Detail Black embossing powder on Vellum.

The Recipe:
GKD Sweet Tweets
PTI Think Big Favorites #12
MME Hootenanny patterned paper
Spellbinders Classic Circles, Scalloped Circles & A2 Scalloped Borders Two
GKD Tomato Soup buttons
Doodlebug Twine
GKD Fine Detail Black embossing powder
Wink of Stella

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made this time.  I hope you will be inspired to play along.  We would love to see what you create!
