Monica, the Hambo diva, turns 29 today!! Welcome to the club girlfriend! Surprise - this card is just for you!

I thought your cherry sentiment went perfectly with this patterned paper by Creative Imaginations. The card base and focal point are SU's Garden Green with a little bit of Jersey Shore peeking out from behind.

To make the bottom of the cupcakes, I ran my cardstock through my paper crimper and punched out with my Round Tab Punch. The tops were made with the same punch. fully appreciate that beautiful button cherry in the middle, you have to know that I've been saving that button for 5 years. I didn't know what I would ever use it for, and so there it sat in the bottom of my button jar, untouched for years. It patiently waited all this time and your cute little stamp gave me the perfect opportunity to use it!

Have a super birthday Monica and make sure you check out what the rest of your design team did - and thanks girls for inviting me to play along!

Aw, MacKenzie ... I'm completely touched that you used that special button on my card -- and what a LOVELY card it is! And very apropos, as Tim brought home two boxes of cupcakes for us to celebrate with last night and today, and amazingly enough, some of the cupcakes are still left! LOL Thank you so much for this wonderful birthday surprise! :)
