Cupcake Calm - NAC3, PP104, & JAI127

Today's card comes by way of Nacho Average Challenge #3, Just Add Ink #127, & The Paper Players 104.  I'm a little to late for the party over at The Paper Players, but oh well!
I used the sketch from NAC3, the color combo from JAI127 (which I added Melon Mambo as my 3rd color), main element from PP104 which challenged us to use words as the main element and keep the project clean and simple.  CAS is a hard concept for me.  I've mentioned this before and I know I'll never be one of those girls that can stamp on element on a white card and call it good.  I need to have some sort of embellishment and some color.  This is about at CAS as I get and with that I still needed to add a little glitter to the cupcake. 

This card could totally be for someone who is having one of those milestone birthdays.  I just celebrated my 40th and I know I would have loved to receive one like this!  As a matter of fact, my SIL gave me this stamp set for my birthday! 
Here's a list of supplies I used on this card.....
Stamps: Carry On
Paper: Whisper White, Black, Black and Melon Mambo DP
Ink: Black, Melon Mambo and Crumb Cake
Accessories: Big Designer button, Black Bakers Twine, Top Note die, Dazzling Diamonds glitter
Thanks for taking a peek!
