Birthday surprise...

Hi everybody, hope your week is off to a good start!?...
I know it's only tuesday but at least we have a long weekend to look forward to :)
Speaking of celebrations this weeks challenge has a "Birthday" theme and with this 4x4 card I had hoped to portray the idea of opening a present.  I used a double sided paper and made a cross slit in the middle and folded it back, like opening wrapping paper.  Well thats what I was aiming at, of course if it's anything like me opening presents I should have torn them open LOL.

I stamped the white space in the middle with a cupcake from the Hey Cupcake set  colored the base with copic markers (alcohol ink markers like ProMarkers) and applied liquid applique and sparkles to the cupcake top. I popped up the birthday sentiment with foam squares and I distressed the edges of pretty much all of it. 3 little gems add some sparkle and voila a scrumptious zero calorie cupcake surprise.
