happy birthday

I made this birthday card today. I paper pieced the bottom of the cupcake and used my xyron to add adhesive to the top of the cupcake, then I poured on the super fine glitter. I am impressed with how well the glitter stuck, it's not shedding at all.

your friendship makes my heart happy

this is an atc I made for Renu's (midnightcreations) flower power atc swap at the stamp shack. I wanted a 60's feel, so I tried to create a tie dye effect, and of course a flower child would have a chrystal, right? stamps are stampin up!
