We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

Birthday Wishes card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Avery ElleI was inspired by the pink frosting on the yummy looking cupcakes in the photo and made a cupcake the focal point of my card.  The layout is from the current challenge at Sunday Stamps.  My cupcake image is from Avery Elle's Cupcakes stamp set.  I stamped the images in brown ink, then added color with Copic markers before cutting out the pieces with the matching dies.  The pieces were assembled on a white circle die cut, using foam tape for dimension.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I gave the cherry extra shine with a coating of Glossy Accents.

To go with the cupcake, I covered a mint green card base with a feminine floral patterned paper panel.  After adding a lace trimmed golden yellow panel to the cardfront, I placed the cupcake image on top.  I stamped the "birthday wishes" sentiment from the Red and Goldie set in black ink on a narrow pink cardstock strip.  I put it in place over the cupcake with foam tape to complete the design.
