Paper Sweeties January Release Countdown...

Hi there!
Just one more day until the *Release* day for Paper Sweeties!  You will then be able to purchase these sweet new stamps!  The *new* stamp set and coordinating die used for the above card is *Sending Sweet Thoughts*.
The cupcake, border of cupcakes and sentiment is from this set.  I squealed with delight when I saw this new stamp set!  The cupcake is so sweet and I just LOVE the sentiment! 
I started with a cream card base and die cut the top layer of the card with a circle die from MFT.  I then layered with a heart doily that was punched and popped up for dimension.  I die cut the cupcake and colored it with a copic marker.  The heart gems were colored with the same copic marker to match.  I added lavender perfect pearls for the cupcake frosting.  Twine was added around the cupcake.  The cupcake border was added to the top of the card and tiny hearts were popped up for dimension.  And, here is a look at the inside of the card...
Just as a reminder...
