Celebrate with cupcakes

HI All!

I wanted to make a gift bag for my Dad's Birthday gift, so I thought that I would use Kristina's color challenge as a starting point. I knew in my head that I wanted to use Simple Birthday Thanks to make a cupcake on the bag. That was the primary reason I bought that stamp. I did preform a major stamp surgery on it....I will try to get that up for you tomorrow.... :) For now...the bag.

Here are the colors for the challenge:

chocolate chip, close to cocoa, baja blue, so saffron, very vanilla - I will have to make another creation out of these colors....I love them together!!!

I just altered a plain kraft gift bag from the store. How easy is this!??!?!?!

See the cupcake up close? I paper pieced the entire thing with the papers from ski slope out of the Holiday Mini - I can't believe how diverse this paper pack definitely isn't just a holiday pack!!! I ran the cup cake liner through my paper crimper. I didn't stamp the cherry, I just drew a black line on the paper where it was. I used soft subtles brads for sprinkles. The icing is mounted up on stampin' dimensionals. The sentiment is from celebrate everything.

This was fun! Now I need to make a cupcake in feminine colors so I can bling up that cherry with glitter!!!
