Birthday Cupcake!

I made this card for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge #83. I'm barely making the cut-off time, but I've been thinking about it all week and finally got an idea today when I saw a cupcake in a magazine add with blue/green icing. The challenge was to use black & white with a splash of green. Thanks for taking a look. Below is the inspiration photo.

Here's what I came up with

Card stock - Basic Black, Whisper White (Stampin Up) Green (Michaels)
Ink - Black (Stampin Up)
Stamp Set - All Holidays (Stampin Up)
Dies - Circle, Scallop circle (Nestabilities), Big Bold Cupcake (Stampin Up)
Embossing Folders - Spots & Dots (Cuttlebug), Lines (Sizzix)
Rhinestones - Gray, Green (Michaels)

1. Create card from card stock - finished size is 5 x 5
2. Cut green and white squares and adhere to card
3. Stamp sentiment on white square
4. Cut green cupcake top and black cupcake bottom in die machine, then run through each on in embossing folder
5. Adhere cupcake top to cupcake bottom with foam tape then adhere to card with foam tape
6. Adhere rhinestones to scallop circle and cupcake top
