Making Cupcakes

This card came together tonight because this stamp set happened to still be on my desk. Considering how often I have a list of "to-do's" or a sketch or colour combination to refer to, I end up making cards pretty randomly. Here's how this one came together...

1) Saw the stamp set: Big Bold Birthday, thought "I haven't used that in a while"
2) I like the cardstock colour lemon tart, there happens to be a piece right here, I'll use that for the base.
3) I want to add dots of colour to the top, so I need two colours that are appropriate for cupcakes and go well together- Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet it is.
4) A circle card would be fun.
5) I have a friend who's turning 25 this Sunday, this could be her birthday card
6) Maybe I should cover the numbers with glitter and stick them on the cupcake, since it seems a bit plain right now.

Yeah, that's pretty much how it came together. It's kind of nice when the creative process just happens. I didn't set out to make a birthday card for a specific person, but it just seemed to fit
