HSS So Into You Color Challenge #57

This weeks challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments is a color challenge entitled, 'So Into You.' Take a look at these gorgeous colors making up this combo...
Can you tell I'm in love with the Big Bold Cupcakes Dies? I have been using them a lot lately and they haven't disappointed. I made a scalloped circle card a few weeks back and wanted to create a circular card for this week.

I started with a circle in Early Espresso for my card base. Next I cut a "ring" out of Poppy Parade card stock after embossing it with the Square Lattice embossing folder. (HINT: Cut the inside circle out first and then the outside. This allows for a sturdier circle and something to grip.)

For the focal point I cut the cupcake base from Pear Pizazz and stamped the sentiment from the On Your Birthday set in Early Espresso Ink. The cupcake topper was cut from Blushing Bride card stock and stamped with Blushing Bride ink and the asterisk image from the Hello Again set. Basic Pearls are applied to the centers. The candles are cut from Daffodil Delight. The base and candles are adhered directly to the card while the topper is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I hope this inspires you to run over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and join our challenge this week. W'd love to have you as a guest!

What a cute card. I don't often think of doing a round card. Have to remember it more.
