Birthday Sundaes Cakes and Cupcakes Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our first ever Birthday Sundaes Blog Hop! 

Our first term is coming to an end and we want to say thank you  to everyone who has made Birthday Sundaes a success with a big celebration!  We are saying goodbye to a few of our current talented Design Team members today and hello to a new group of amazing cardmakers.  To kick off the celebrations, we have all made Birthday Cards with Cakes and Cupcakes for you to feast your eyes on!  What better way to say hello and goodbye! 

If you have come here today from Michelle at My Passion for Crafting, then you are heading in the right direction!  If you just stopped by to see me today (thanks), you'll want to hop back over to the Birthday Sundaes Challenge Blog and start from the beginning!  Believe me, you are not going to want to miss out on one stop of this delicious hop!  

My Birthday Card is a very special one!  My Middle E is celebrating her 4th Birthday this week!  She loves chocolate cupcakes and the color purple, so this is the special card I made just for her!

I'm pretty sure she is going to love it!  Here are the details...

I made my background paper by punching circles (1", 3/4", 1/2") in three different colors of purple.  I adhered them to my background cardstock and dry embossed it with Tim Holtz Retro Circles folder!  Then I used my machine to sew around the border.  I love how it turned out!

All the sentiments are My Craft Spot Inside & Out Set #2.  I absolutely LOVE the "Eat Cake!" sentiment!  I would love to eat cake everyday...hehe!

Here is a close up of the delicious cupcake which is from Once Upon a Princess.  I added Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter to add a yummy sparkle to the frosting!

Here is a view of the dimension on the cupcake!  

The inside sentiment also comes from My Craft Spot Inside & Out Set #2. Speaking of this stamp set, who wants some blog candy??  I am giving away this stamp set to one lucky winner!

I am a new follower, but I am so glad that I did this blog hop. Your stuff is amazing. I really love how you made your own background and then on top of it, embossed it. I love the idea and I will definitely have to try it on one of my next projects.
