Let Them Eat Cake!

I decided to a little crafting today and made some very quick and simple cards.  I made all four of these in just under an hour.

The card bases are all pre-made ones from DCWV.  I chose some really fun, cheerful colors.

I then used one of the metal dies from the Panel Dies set by Jaded Blossom to cut the opening in the front of the card.  I used the cupcake from the Birthday Panels stamp set, also by Jaded Blossom, to stamp my image on the inside of the card, so that it showed through the opening.

The sentiment on the front is from the Sweet Birthday Wishes stamp set by Jaded Blossom.

I added a little color to the cupcakes by outlining their icing with some glittery metallic markers.  I finished off the outside with some coordinating sequins.

I also stamped a sentiment on the inside, this one from the So Many Birthdays 2 stamp set by Jaded Blossom.

I made this for the following challenges:
CASology: cue word - open
Seize the Birthday - anything goes with the option of clean and simple
Cute Card Thursday: a bit of fun
