Cherry on Top

My oldest had her birthday party about 2 weeks ago and this is the thank you card. Her "theme" was cupcakes. The invites were pink and brown cupcakes but we were unable to find brown streamers (a must have at a party!). In addition, my brother's girlfriend had her baby shower over Easter weekend and the colors were pink and celery (isn't it funny how non stampers will say "green" but a stamper MUST get the shade just right.) There were balloons and tablecloths left over so I brought them home and we decorated with pink and celery.
I used some polka dotted paper that I found at Archivers, and some cute little gems my friend Nicole gave to me. I finally dusted off my crimper as well. The shape/image is the Stampin' Up! Simple Birthday Thanks. The idea of paper piecing with it came from a swap that I received at the SCS Michigan Mingle. The cheery is stamped onto white card stock and then colored with my Certainly Celery marker and Ruby Red marker. The top of the cupcake is stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and stamped onto Pink Pirouette card stock. The sprinkles are colored with my white gel pen. The sentiment reads "You're the cherry on top" and is from Amuse. It was alot of work cutting this baby out! Thankfully I only need 7 of them!
Hope you have a great day!
