A Sweet Treat and HSS Sketch Challenge #55

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's yesterday and are geared up for and a fun sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments . This weeks sketch was artfully mastered by our own Genevieve Valdes. Here's a look at the inspiration...
And here is the card I made...
I combined two cards found in the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. Did you know our catalog is jam packed with great ideas as well as products? If you don't have a copy, contact me and I'll get one out to you immediately. 
Here's how I put together this fun card though. I started with a 4"x4" square of Chocolate Chip and ran it through my Big Shot with the Textured Impressions Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I cut the larger scallop from the Scallop Circle #2 die in Riding Hood Red and placed a Very Vanilla circle on top of it. The cupcake is cut from the Big Bold Cupcake set. This is an adorable set and I've made other cards lately with it, you'll be seeing those in the near future:)
The heart was punched with our Heart to Heart punch and a Rhinestone from our Basic Rhinestone collection was added. (HINT: These Rhinestones come in 3 sizes and have adhesive already on them for a quick bling addition.) The sentiment is from the On Your Birthday set and was punched out with the Word Window punch.
Make sure to stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments and see the other designers takes of the sketch. And as always, we'd love to see you join us for our challenge.

Great colors and arrangement of your card. I keep forgetting to use those awesome Sizzix dies.
