Cupcake Birthday Card

Hey all! I made this card for the Birthday Sundaes Weekly Challenge - this week the challenge is part of their first ever Blog Hop as well!  The rules:
Our theme for this week's hop & challenge is "Cakes and Cupcakes Birthday Cards".
And of course you have to have a Birthday sentiment. 
I decided to go for a very simple design this week - I just wanted to make a simple and cute birthday card after last weeks shaped card!

Materials needed for this project:
Cardstock in pink, brown, tan, and blue.
Pre-made card base.
Patterned paper in 3 different patterns.
Pink and white twine.
Stamp Markers in blue and pink.
"Have a Great Birthday" Stamp.
Glue dots, Pop Up Sticker Squares, and Glue.
Pebbles Inc. Chalks.
Sparkle ModPodge and foam brush
Cricut Carts - Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More (Tag), Sweet Treats (Cupcake), Jasmine (Rectangles).

After making all of the cuts - I glued together the cupcake and while it was drying chalked the edges of both rectangles and the tag.  I used Glue Dots to adhere the rectangles to the card.  I then used a foam brush to coat the cupcake with the Sparkle ModPodge - mainly because it was a new purchase that I just wanted to play with!

I used Pop Up Square Stickers to apply the cupcake to the card after it dried.

I used the Stamp Markers (another new toy) to color the stamp in 2 different colors and then added a little pink and white twine to it.  I applied it to the card with Pop Up Square Stickers as well.

This card is super simple, but is one I may make more of - I will probably add another base color instead of putting everything on the cream card though.

What do you think?
