Friends make life sweet card

Hello my crafty friends! Happy Saturday to you all! Today Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady has a challenge going on. The challenge is to make any card, but make 2 of the same card. This is such a helpful tip! When you are making a card for some, just make an extra one to put in your stash! Here's what I came up with:
I used my new E2 and American Alphabet for the cupcake. It was cut at 4.25". I also used Elegant Edges and cut the oblong frame on page 47 at 5.50". I used an OLD stamp I've had since I was in high school, okay so I stole it from my mom, do you remember D.O.T.S?! This was a wiggly border stamp and worked perfect for the liner.
Then I took some green tulle, ruffled, and stapled it to the red layer.

I added the other layers, some foam dots for dimension, and of course some bling! The stamp is Yummy Puns Stamps from Joy's Life (Love this set!!!),  I used a SU punch to cut out the sentiment, and added more foam mounting squares.
Ok, so I really made 4 of these cute cards, but I already gave one away and one is still sitting on my "door" to be made. ;)

Thanks Sheila for a great challenge! If you have a moment this weekend to craft make sure to visit She's a Sassy Lady and link up your cards for the challenge! Have a great weekend! I'm off to a Crafty Girls workshop and just can't wait to scrap the day away! <3 Kristy

I love your card Kristy!! It's so pretty! Making 2 of the same card is so smart. I finally made a few extras of some cards this week and I know I'm going to be glad I did it. ;) I'm so happy that you love my Yummy Puns stamps set. :) It's one of my favorites too!
