Cupcake Birthday Card for SSS45 Challenge

I really liked the look of the sketch at the Sweet Stop blog and this is the card I made for the SSS #45 challenge. Here's the sketch:

The card measures 5 3/4" square and I used SU! Chocolate Chip CS for the base and two yummy Sweet Always papers for layering. I stamped the cupcake from the Crazy for Cupcakes set but omitted the candle as I wanted a flower to top my cupcake instead. I stamped twice so I could cut out one image and pop it up.

I've coloured using Coloursoft Pencils and Zest-It solvent. I embossed the Banana circle with the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder after stamping the sentiment. I punched the flower from the SU! Boho Blossoms punch, used a DEET to add some shaping and added a gem brad to the centre. To finish, I added the three Pebbles Inc. domed Candy Dots and the Banana photo corners.

Stamps: SU! Crazy for Cupcakes & One of a Kind sets
CS: SU! Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose & Barely Banana, Elzybells smooth white CS
Patterned paper: SU! Sweet Always Designer Series Paper pack
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip, VersaFine Vintage Sepia
Tools: Circle, rectangle and square Nestabilities dies, D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder, Sizziz Sizzlits Photo Corners #2 die, SU! Boho Blossoms punch, Derwent Coloursoft pencils & Zest-It natural solvent, DEET & moulding mat
Embellishments & accessories: May Arts brown & white striped grosgrain ribbon, Pebbles Inc. Chocolate Candy Dots, gem brad, 3d foam pads
