Hey Cupcake!

I just recently discovered the Make It Monday Link Party, and really like the idea of sharing my current personal favorite creation each week. Love looking at everyone's projects, too...a great resource for inspiration.

I decided to mix two challenges to make this card, because I wanted to try both themes. Birthday Sundaes is focusing on Shaped Cards (and I can also use birthday cards!), and the Saturday Challenge at Just Some Lines is to use dots. I pulled out all my spotted papers, using mostly scraps, and made a paper-pieced card based on the Cupcake by Stampendous.

I couldn't resist adding a hidden massage on the front! I ended up hand-cutting the hearts, to make it easier to stamp and emboss evenly. I'm definitely going to have to make more of these, maybe with more pages. Here's the "inside":

Inspiration:
Birthday Sundaes Challenge #14: Shaped Birthday Cards
