Happy Birthday Cupcake Crafts

Cupcake Crafts are celebrating their 1st Birthday this week and have loads of goodies to give away and a fab blog hop to take part in too. Visit Cupcake Crafts to join in the fun.

These cards are for two challenges, Cupcake Crafts 'Something sweet' and One Stop Crafts to use pink and black:

I made a set of six cards as I love making sets and haven't done so in ages. Being as they're pink I got a bit carried away!

I'd run out of my favourite pink card so I printed these on white linen card using Pink Petticoats Orchid paper. Yummy isn't it? Goes so well with the cupcake image which is also from Pink Petticoat and lazily already coloured ready to print. The scalloped mat is made using a Fiskars punch and the other shapes are Nestabilities and punches.

The ribbon is from Debbie Moore I think and attached simply with a staple. I printed a few extra cupcakes to decorate the envelopes.

Hope to get some quiet time this evening to blog hop, so much going on and I'm missing it all
