There is a lot of pretty sparkle (stickles in stardust) on the top of the cupcake that doesn't show well in my pictures, but you get the idea! I almost always choose paper first and then color, but this time I colored the cupcake and went in search of dp that would work. The Daisy D stripe that I came upon in my (huge!) paper stash had the perfect colors. Then I pulled some of the bitty dots from my PTI stack. I really love the look of so many colors with Kraft paper. My other solid is PTI's Ocean Tides.
BG10, BG72 and the lightest touch of BG (I added a touch of E33 to dim the ribbon color)
E31, E35, E25, and a touch of E49 for the darkest part of the chocolate cupcake.
E95, E02 for the peachy frosting.
I just bought a Stampendous sentiment for inside which says "Everyone knows, Birthday calories don't count!" I love that!
Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting!
