Happy Birthday Ruby!!!

 I joined the McMahon Five Design Team just in time for a celebration- it is Ruby's Birthday!
Happy Birthday Ruby!  Here is a cupcake with no calories! If you would like to stop by and wish her Happy Birthday, jump on over HERE

   I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!!

My dear friend Kim just signed on to be a SU demonstrator.  She had a few friends over tonight to have some creative fun.  We made a couple of cards and the cupcake above.  The base is a nut cup covered with a strip of crimped DSP (1" x 6")  Then, we punched a pink scallop (2 3/8 ") and cut between two scallop edges to the center- overlapped one section of scallop and that formed an 'arch'.  We then punched holes for brads (sprinkles) and added a cherry on top (a bead with some floral wire).  How cute is that???  Kim put a piece of Styrofoam in the center to fill the cup....... 
    This is one of the cards we made.  I know the color is bad- it's pretty late....I will retake the photo and edit Sunday!  Oooohhh I love this card- me and pink... (or blue).......
   The rest of the McMahon Five Design team has joined in the celebration for Ruby's birthday too.  Please HOP on over to Michelle's blog to share in celebrating with us some more!!!  And, if along the way any of the links fail, just go back to the McMahon Five Blog.
  If you would like the chance to win free digital stamps, stop on over at the McMahon Five Designs Blog and take a short survey!

  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
Shelly

Both of these projects are adorable! I can envision the cupcake made with felt too! Is that quilling on the second card? I love quilling, but haven't done too much of it.
