Good morning.
I am excited to share the first card I created with the March Creative Cafe KOTM called - Special Celebration.  I used the add-on stamp set called "Little Cupcake."
This kit is full of delicious cupcakes, that can be decorated for each persons taste.  WARNING:  It WILL make you hungry!  It is paired beautifully with On Trend 2 by My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 paper pad and Queen & Co. enamels.  

Let's take a look at my card and then I will break it down for you. 

I started with a 5x5 card base in pink.  
Cut a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 block of mint green and white striped and added to pink card base.
Cut a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 corner floral paper as shown.  I cut the inside of same paper 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  I applied the remaining thin layer on the stripped and then backed the inside paper with foam and added to the center of that.  You see stitching around the thin paper,  I cut this with a die. TIP:   You can sew yours to get the same effect without any thread!  Do this before adding foam raised paper square.

I cut out and raised the flowers with foam and adhered back where they came from.  Added pearls for decor.  

At the last minute, I wanted more mint to the top of the card.  I cut a triangle and adhered as you see. I stamped with mint green along the line provided by the triangle.

On the extra white cardstock, I stamped this beautiful cupcake from the add-on stamp set - Little Cupcake.  I colored with copies and then added glossy accents to the top and waited for it to dry before adding to the card.  Last but not least, I added enamels for extra pizzaz!

Keep checking back, our new designers have joined us as we are designing like crazy behind the scenes!
