                 ESAD Info Retirement Colours-001


The Sneak Peak item I used is the 'Sprinkles of Life' stamp set.

For about the past 10 years the cup cake industry has been going through the roof and you see them instead of Birthday cakes, Christening cakes, Engagement and Wedding cakes etc..... In fact my Wedding cake comprised of many cup cakes back in 2008. We had a huge box of extra cup cakes so that every guest got one.

                            I decided to go with the tiered cupcakes in my pop up                                              Happy Birthday Explosion card.

Stamp sets- Sprinkles of Life, Something for Baby (little heart on background) and Crazy About You.
CS - Basic Grey, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Sarah Sand, Calypso Coral, Dafodil Delight and Lullaby DSP.
Ink- VersaMark and white embossing powder for cup cake tops, Soft Suede, StaZon jet black ( for candles) and Calypso Coral.
Accessories- Hello You Thinlits dies, Dimensionals, Tombo liquid glue and glue dots.
