MDS Blog Hop Week 3

  I whipped up a little creation for our third week's challenge of CUPCAKES!  At first, I have to admit I was stumped when I got the challenge email. But then once I got the card done, the mojo was flowin!
My nephews birthday party is Saturday and it was the perfect solution for the challenge. I started with a simple card that I would print out and add to a base Crumb Cake card.  I could have added the real Baker's Twine now that I look at it.  Love the 8 mini cupcakes in a row! Colors are Riding Hood Red, More Mustard, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.
 Then I took the theme of cupcakes and the colors to the next level by making a special banner just for my nephew. He can hang it in his room after the party for one whole year!  I created this in a 4.25x5.5 postcard layout. I created the first one and then copied and paste in place to create the other 7 of them. Just change the colors and dsp in the punches.  After printing and trimming, I punched 1/16" holes in the corners and threaded the Baker's Twine in Cherry Cobbler thru them. I added some retired Riding Hood Red ribbon to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by on our MDS Blog Hop!

I'm in love with that banner - what a cute way to tie it in with the card you're giving him!
