Shabby Birthday Cupcakes

Good Morning....I'm still very sad about the recent tragedy that happened and as I find out more information it just gets sadder by the minute :( So in the attempt to feel not so sad, I thought today I would try to make something cheerful like a new birthday card. I was inspired by this weeks 


So here is my interpretation of this fun pink birthday theme. I really layered this card quite a bit..it just seemed like it needed something more??? I'm really happy the way it turned out. I started off using light pinks and I made the big flower out of Kleenex. The tutorial by Joanne Allison can be found here. I added a vintage pearl button that I found in a big bag at Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is from Verve, called "treasured words" I really love this set and hoping to get more soon. :)


I used my cricut "sweet treats" at 1 inch to make these little cupcakes in white and then layered them with inked cream cardtock. I then added white liquid applique and leftover pink pearls to give the cupcake a super yummy and realistic look. The premade flowers are from prima...left from another project and the tiny flowers were part of my Scrap That! kit this month.  The little birdcage was also cut using my cricut "serenade" at 2 inches.


The "floral ovals" from Spellbinders are one of my favorite sets, I tend to use it often. The little banner was cut with my cricut .75 inches on George Basic Shapes, triangles. I just glued thin pink ribbon to the tops and added pearls. Underneath the the banner is a diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs called "Italian Flourish" It is really detailed and so beautiful! The chipboard is part of Donna Salazar's "hand drawn swirls" and I inked and embossed it with my favorite "mixd media inx- jasmine" Im almost out! Need to get of that very very soon...


One last side view....
I am also entering this card into other card challenges:
