Cupcake Inspiration 500th Challenge

This is my second post today. 

The Cupcake Inspiration challenge is celebrating its 500th challenge. That is definitely something to celebrate and I celebrated big!!

Cupcake Big Bday Wishes

I got that "Big Birthday Wishes" die when I was first discovering the fun of slimline cards. (NOTE: the white panel is exactly 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 and the die just fits. When I got the card done, I decided it needed just a bit of a frame around the white so it's now slightly bigger. It won't fit in an A9 envelope, but it does fit in the bigger A10.)  

Of course, I had to use a cupcake.  This is the biggest cupcake I have, but sadly when I pulled out the set, the candle die that comes with is missing but I found a substitute.  The bow isn't in the cupcake set but it's one of my favorites and I loved the look with this cheerful card.  Some stripes of paper and a sprinkling of coordinating sequins and it's definitely a big and bright birthday card.

Congratulations to Cupcake Inspirations!!
