Cup of Joy Challenge...

The Paper Players Challenge this week is called 'Cup of Joy'.  Cute, right?  I am a huge fan of tea cups so I was thrilled to see this challenge.  As I was looking through my supplies I realized I had a lot of cup cake items and a little light bulb went off in my head: how about not taking the challenge so literally and make a cup cake card?  And off I went.

Here's what I came up with:

I love the combination of brown, green and pink.  

I used some glitter paper for the flame of the candle & I love the way it turned out.  The cupcake is a Stampin' Up punch and one of my favorites. Other things I used:

Paper: All scraps from my supply
Ink: Stampin' Up Early Espresso
Happy Birthday Stamp: Party this Way set by Stampin' Up
Baker's Twine: Stampin' Up
Ribbon: Hobby Lobby

Head over to the Paper Players and see more Cup of Joy cards!
