Birthday Cupcakes

This fun card was inspired by a card in the Stampin’ Up catalog.  I flag all the cards I like, then make my own version of them.  This is similar to using sketches.
The fiber along the edges is called eyelash yarn.  I bought mine long ago at a show, but you can buy an entire skein at a craft store for a few dollars.  It would be interesting to see what people knit or crochet with this yarn.  The bottom of the banner looked plain so I rubbed pink ink along the edges.
The cupcake frosting is liquid appliqué.  My white turned a bit cream colored over time.  When wet it was sprinkled with raspberry Mini Mosaics by Suze Weinberg (purchased years ago), then heated to puff it up.
