LOTS of Cupcakes.....and sparkle!!!

I pulled out every cupcake stamp I own to create the main image panel. I just got a cupcake set from Hero Arts, and I also used a Michael's $ stamp, an image from the 'Icing on the Cake' set from MFT, and some small cupcake stamps from several SU sets (sorry, didn't write down the names of the sets I pulled them from). The sentiment I used for this card is also from 'Icing on the Cake' by My Favorite Things. The tiny little glass jar is from Michael's, in the Bridal section (thank you to texasjodylynn, for enabling me!), and holds a handful of M&M's. (Sorry for using such a general measurement....) All of the images are colored with Copic markers, and lots (lots!) of Stickles were added, for some sparkle. This card measures 8 1/2 x 4, which should fit in a regular business-sized envelope. I think I've only made 1 or 2 cards in this shape, and it was fun to do for a change. I found a bunch of cupcake-themed items in the clearance section at Target this weekend, and I think I'm going to put together a 'just-because' gift for my niece. I'm working on a matching journal, which I'll upload later today after I'm finished with it. (Hmmm, maybe I'll make two, and keep one for myself!) Thanks for looking, and I hope you like it! Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone!!
