10 Minute Craft Dash #23 Happy Birthday!

Hey Hey!

I can't even begin to tell you when the last time I posted a card just to post a card. I seriously have not had a moment to spare and have just been working on design team work! Which is fine because I am still doing what I love, but every now and then it's great to steal some time just cuz! Well, I am TOTALLY getting this under the wire for the BIG BIRTHDAY BASH at the 10 MINUTE CRAFT DASH, so I couldn't let it go without making an attempt. This is for you Paulina! :-))))

Since I saw the theme, I pretty much knew what I wanted to do and the papers to use, but couldn't get the time to actually get it done. Granted it should only take 10, but it has to be 10 minutes uninterrupted which isn't happening in my house right now! 

Well, last night was the night, but the second part of this crazy crafty life is blogging and editing pictures and that had to be done later. So here I am just getting this in under the wire. 

With that said, here we go!

First here is what I gathered for supplies. I pretty much stuck to most of it. I did change out the twine, added glitter, needed scallop punch,,and washi tape.  See even during the creative process of planning it changes in a time crunch. 
Here is what I ended up with! (Thank goodness, you don't see the glitter mess off to the side)

I had time to spare and I am not sure how. Oh, I had wanted to add something to the top of my cupcake (like a cherry that comes in this set or a button, but ugh I knew if I pushed it then I would blow it)
I started by working on the hardest thing first, and that was stamp and paper piece the cupcake image.I cut down a piece of white cardstock and added a scallop trim in coordinating polka-dotted patterned paper to the bottom. I added the washi tape, and then stamped my greeting. 

My cupcake needed some zing, so I added some chunky glitter and added to the panel with foam mounting tape. Using more foam tape, I added the panel to the center of the card. Lastly, I took a length of Baker's Twine and wrapped it around the card front and tied in a bow adding a button!
Time to complete 9:04.8 WHEW!
The stamps I used are by Hero Arts - Cupcakes

I am also joining Link It Up Tuesday - Linky Party, Sunday {Fun}day - Linky Party, Just B Creative Crazy - Just Because Linky Party!
