Birthday cupcakes

This card is for a friend of mine that has a birthday this week.  I looked at the Mojo Monday sketch earlier in the week but didn't have time to start anything at that time.  Pile it on challenge was bling, which is not a problem to add to any feminine card.  And lastly when 365 cards had a "finish in 15" I had been thinking about it enough (with no time to actually do it) that all my ideas were all worked out, so 15 minutes was easy.
I used the designer cupcake paper.  I also used some shimmer pink and shimmer vanilla paper.  Some plain brown paper was added in there for good measure.  I used an embossing folder for the cupcakes on the pink shimmer.  I used a total of 3 stamps on the vanilla shimmer paper, the darling cupcake, the sentiment, and then the border (stamped 4 times around the edges).  I added a burlap flower with a gemstone.  Done!
