FMS #58: When all else fails, eat a cupcake!

Welcome to another fabulous challenge from the Freshly Made Sketches team! This week's sketch was designed by our guest designer, Narelle Farrugia. This is a great way to use some of those little strips of scrap designer paper that you've been saving for *just the right project* - or am I the only one who does that? :)
I had approximately 9.2 minutes to stamp this week, and I knew that I needed something quick and easy. I decided on a pink cupcake because, seriously, can you go wrong with a pink cupcake? I think not.
I pulled the embossed panel from my stash and, as I mentioned before, I pulled the designer papers from my scraps. Throw in a cupcake, a cute little flower and a rhinestone and voila! A sweet little birthday card. Please stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see the other lovely works from the rest of the design team - you are sure to be inspired!

Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Floral District dsp

9.2 minutes! That's funny, but I can relate! I think all woman have to plan their days in seconds. Your card is fabulous. I love the bright colors and the texturing as well as that perfect cupcake and the details. TFS!

Nope...you can't go wrong with any color cupcake...especially one that "bakes" in 9.2 minutes! The rhinestone adds the perfect amount of bling!

I'm so jealous. It takes me 9.2 minutes just to figure out what stamps I'm going to use! And you're right - pink cupcakes are all that!

Love it! Pink cupcakes are the best (especially in my world where everything is blue!). I love your 9.2 minutes! Glad our worlds seem to be in sync! I do love the pink and orange together!
