Happy Birthday Cupcake

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Here's a card I made not too long ago using the Straight from the Nest Cricut cartridge. I'm not a "bird" person, so to speak, but Provocraft has put out some adorable bird cartridges (Straight from the Nest, 3 Birds on Parade, Give a Hoot) that not only have cute birds (owls, chicks, etc), but a bunch of other great images that you might not expect to find. I went a little crazy with the Stickles, as you can see but I think it added that little extra bit that makes you want to eat the cupcake ;) The only trouble with using Stickles is that, particularly in humid climate, you have to let them dry forever--I usually let it sit out overnight. I also got to use my new-ish simple scallop punch from Stampin Up--so much easier than those edge scissors that I used to use.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great day.
