Happy birthday....

... to my not so little girl. Jemma is 12 today, 12 years that have flown by in the blink of an eye. She spent her day shopping, and swimming, and now has a friend over for a sleepover. However, her main party is Saturday, when 3 of her friends are coming out for a meal, and then sleeping over...

This is the card I made for her birthday. Jemma has taken a shine to baking just recently, so I thought I would make her a paper cupcake! I used 2 sketches from Sketch Support for this card - Card sketch #5 and Add-on sketch #3.

I used up scraps from BasicGrey Recess collection, and the "frosting" of the cupcake uses Scenic Route scraps. I scored kraft cardstock with my Hougie board to make the cupcake base, and the border is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. I cut the circles for the "frosting" were cut using my circle Nestabilities. The sentiment stamp is by Personal Impressions, and the foam numbers are American Crafts Thickers. I added some Frosted Lace Stickles to the cupcake to add extra frostiness!!

Jemma loved the card, and had a great day. She is already counting the days til her next brithday, although I know I am not that keen for her to be a teenager as quickly as she is....
