Have your CAKE and eat it too!

This was a quick and easy birthday card for my wonderful sister-in-law!  I used a few scraps of paper from "A 29th Street Market."  The shabby chic bluish-purple background paper was cut to be 5x4 when folded.  I then cut out the cupcake from the Smiley cart. I cut the bottom in another scrap of 29th Street Market paper and the top in white.  I inked the edges of everything, the card, cupcake and cupcake topping with Margareta ink.  I then used my great Peachy Keen face stamps to add the cute face.  I used my finger tip to add little cheeks using the same Margareta ink.  I hand wrote the saying "Have your CAKE and eat it too!"  I added a small strip of patterned paper (same line) across the top and then tied a matching ribbon scrap around the top. 

Inside I mounted another strip of paper on the bottom half of the card (see the fleur de lis??)  The great thing about this line of paper is it is all reversible! :)  Then I added a solid block to the inside to show the sentiment.  I cut the HA-P B-DAY from the Smiley cart and mounted it on a solid paper.  I inked all the edges again!  In the end, a cute and easy card!
