Happy Birthday Cupcake Tilda

Hello everyone! I've been wanting to make a shaped easle card and finally got one done thanks to Magnolia Down Under's challenge. I designed it on my Gypsy and the Doodlecharm cart.

The icing is embossed with my cuttlebug and the Dvine Swirl folder. I wanted to recreate the pleated look of a cupcake bottom so I used the distressed stripe folder for it. I think it turned out fabulous. Of course you have to have some bling so I used stickles on all the swirls.
I colored Dinner Tilda with my copics and sat her on a piece of twill ribbon from Lil Davis Designs.
The Happy Birthday is a Studio G wood rubber stamp from the $1 Michaels bin. All the swirls were a perfect match for the swirls on the cupcake to tie it altogether.

I hope you enjoy my card and leave me a comment. I'm entering this in the Magnolia Down Under Challenge - make a shaped card. Sun May 30
