Happy Happy Birthday to You

I was in need of a birthday card and this is what I came up with. I just am in love with cupcakes. The "happy happy" sentinment is from the stamp set Hampton Art Happy Birthday (to you). The image of the cupcake, as well as the greeting inside is from Hero Arts Happy Birthday Cupcakes. The two hearts were colored with a red Copic marker. The paper I used was Basic Grey Nook and Pantry. For some interest I paper pierced the edge of the inner square. The one piece of brown polka dot cardstock is from my paper stash. I wrapped a piece of vellum around the designer paper prior to adhering it to the card base. Some faux stitching was added with a brown Sharpie marker.
I was going to paper piece the cupcake image but decided to color it in with my Copic markers (Y13, Y17, E25, E44, E27, YG03, YG93). I put the image on pop dots to give it some dimension.

So that's my card for today, thanks for stopping by!
