Birthday Cupcakes

**To view this week's Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential: Christmas Flowers post, click HERE**
Stamps: Magnolia 'Tilda with Cowberry Muffin', 'Cowberry Muffin'; Papertrey 'Birthday Basics'. Cardstock: Papertrey Dark Chocolate; SU Riding Hood Red, Cosmo Cricket 'Honey Pie' DP. Ink: Memento, Copics, Riding Hood Red. Accessories: Long rectangle Nestabilities, SU circle punches, Quick Cutz die cuts, glitter pens, Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

My new favorite type of swap are the card kit swaps and this is a prime example why: Angela (SCS monkeymama) created this amazing kit full of wonderfully coordinated images, papers, and embellies like buttons and ribbon. There's plenty more supplies for additional cards!

If you are interested in a card kit swap, Angela is currently hosting a Magnolia card kit swap on SplitCoast Stampers that isn't due until February 2010. You create 6 kits with two images, two sheets of DP, and embellies then receive five different kits in return; one is for the hostess.
It's a perfect way to stock up on images you may not have and go-to kits for those last minute cards!

This sketch is based on Tuesday Morning Sketch #22 with a slight modification; I cropped one long side of an A2 card thinner and used the circle element as a fastener to 'lock' the card closed. Here's a view of the card when opened:

Another December birthday card complete!
