Happy Birthday with a Cherry on Top

Here is a fun little card I made for  a friend's birthday. I like the image of the cupcake with the cherry on individual birthday cake! The cherry and the cupcake paper are colored with alcohol markers. Then I added glaze to the cherry so it is glossy! The frosting is solid fine glitter too.

Once again I've used several Fun Stampers Journey craft supplies:
cupcake image- FSJ "Birthday Sketch" set
glaze- FSJ Journey Glaze
Happy Birthday stamp- FSJ "Greet & Shout" set
banner dies- FSJ "Pennants" with stamps- FSJ "Banner Party"
I also used a couple Spellbinders dies: "Classic Scalloped Circles Large" and "Standard Circles Large".
The mottled lime green paper (at the bottom) is FSJ from the set called "Zombie Nights".
The light green polka dot and the red 'star' print papers are from Hobby Lobby.
The black card base is also FSJ cs "Black Licorice".

On the inside of the card I used all the same papers/cs and added a white shape to write a personal birthday greeting. That I decorated with a couple stamped banners from the "Banner Party" set using FSJ inks.

This month Fun Stampers Journey is offering a great Hostess Special for anyone hosting a qualifying party totaling $150 or more...a MYSTERY BOX containing $50 (or more!) worth of  "throwback" FSJ product! That means items no longer in the catalog like stamps, inks, accessories, + + +!! I've seen what a couple gals got in their boxes: a stamp set, 2 ATS stamps, ink, re-inker, and glitter/sparkle! And every box is different! For those of you who do not live near me, you can have an "on-line party" that you just invite your friends to look at the FSJ catalog on our website and order right there indicating they are "attending" YOUR party! Very easy! You can just send invites via emails, post to your Facebook friends, hand out postcards, etc. Interested? Let me know! Leave a comment or email me at
