Birthday Sundaes Blog Hop and Challenge

Hi everyone! I made this card for the Cake and Cupcake Bloghop and Challenge over at Birthday Sundaes! What a fun hop, lots of blog candy to try to win. I made it just under the deadline too! Hope you enjoy. I'm so excited because back when I first started youtubing about card making I learned how to make the paper I used for the frosting. It's made using alcohol inks and shaving cream (messy, but worth it) Here are the treasures I used to make this A2 size card:

Birthday Bash Cartridge for the cupcake (cut at 4")
different paper from my scrap box
Divine Swirls embossing folder
Happy Birthday embossing folder
Wet embossing for the sentiment (purple, and I still need lots of practice)
Happy Birthday sentiment from ? (I think I bought it at Hobby Lobby)
Button from my grandmother's button box

Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday...
