Birthday Cupcake

My granddaughter, Gigi, will turn nine on Monday and her party is tomorrow afternoon. I just don't know where the time has gone... it seems like she was born just yesterday! I was so excited when I made her birthday party invitations several weeks ago and even more excited to finish her birthday cupcake - a gift card holder decorated with paper flowers and a girly sentiment! Thanks so much to Julie P for the wonderful tutorial! Gigi's favorite color is blue and she wanted a pink birthday party, so I covered the cupcake with various shades of blue and pink flowers, and made a pink vertical belly band to hold the gift card. My favorite color is green, so I incorporated a little bit of "Grammy" into it by using the green floral paper for the wrapper. This was so much fun and I can't wait to make more! :D

I'd love to enter my Birthday Cupcake gift card holder into the following challenges:

  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock; pink and green floral cardstock from stash; light pink textured cardstock from stash
  • 3" styrofoam ball, cut in half; three narrow strips of dimensional foam tape
  • Lili of the Valley Circular Sentiments
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Spellbinders Classic Circles and Lacey Circles dies
  • Sentiment from the Blockheads Verses-Retro stamp set
  • Wild Orchid Crafts flowers
  • Light pink satin double face ribbon
  • White flat-back pearl

Thanks so much for stopping by - see you next time! ;)
