I purchased this stamp and die set on sale a few months back and have been wanted to use it so bad...I missed all my nieces' birthdays but Connie's birthday is a good reason to use it!

I used several layers of paper to create the cupcake.  All of which came from the Sweet Threads collection except the pink card stock and the vellum.  I stamped the "icing" on the vellum and embossed.  I love how it turned out!  I hope Connie did too!  I actually sent her this card for her birthday!
