Woohoo - I made the SWU Fave Five

Yippee!! I made the Stamp With Us Fave Five with my Happi(ness) Birthday card.

This week's challenge is to use this picture as colour inspiration. Well I couldn't resist - I used the picture for inspiration full stop. Had to do it.

So here's my challenge entry this week (all supplies are Stampin' Up!).

Stamp Set: Crazy for Cupcakes
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel
Paper: White vellum
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Punches: Scallop Oval, Large Oval, Corner Rounder
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Chocolate Chip

Using chocolate Chip marker I inked up just one of the mini cupcakes from the cakestand and stamped it multiple times for my background. The cupcake paper is vellum scored repeatedly and cut to shape. The chocolate curls are Chocolate Chip card rolled around a cocktail stick and snipped.

Mmmm - hungry. Going for my tea now.
