Cupcake Birthday Card - Colored with Spectrum Noir Markers

Hello!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We had a fun night last night.  It was my Mom's birthday and all of the "grown-ups" went out for dinner to celebrate.  We went to Bonefish, yummy!  Anyway, here is the card I made for my Mom's birthday!  I used Recollections papers I got in a stack at Michael's recently, such pretty paper!  The cupcake and sentiment stamp are both from Close To My Heart.  I have recently become a consultant for CTMH, their stamps are awesome quality!  And the cupcake has a coordinating cut on the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge so that makes it even easier to use.  I just recently discovered the new Spectrum Noir markers, I have a smallish collection of Copic markers so I am hoping to use these far less expensive markers to fill in some missing colors.  I'm not sure that they color quite as well as my Copic markers but for about 1/3 the price I am pretty happy with them!  I also used some Icicle Stickles on the cupcake wrapper to add a little sparkle.  I inked the card and cupcake with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the lace was from my stash.  Thanks for looking!

I will share this card on the following sites:
