Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #300-Sparkle!

Hi there!
I'd like to share with you today a card I made for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!  Paper Sweeties is sponsoring the challenge along with approximately twenty other fun!!!  And, the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate from Paper Sweeties!  It is Cupcake Inspiration's 300th Challenge, so they are ready for a huge party!!!
The theme for today's challenge is sparkle!  And, here is my card...
For my card, I started with a green card base and paired it with pink and Melissa Frances paper.  A row of cupcakes was stamped for the top and bottom border using the stamp set Sending Sweet Thoughts.  The cupcake was stamped using the same stamp set and die cut with Sweet Cuts-Sending Sweet Thoughts.  I added liquid pearls, stickles, and glitter glaze from MFT to the cupcake and candles for sparkle and shine!  The candles were made by cutting the band that's around the cupcake and using one of the leaves for the flame.  Ribbon(Vintage Winter White), button, and twine to finish off the card.
So, friends, go on over to join in on the fun!  I hope to see your project over at the challenge!  Take care!
