Crazy for Cupcakes Birthday - The Friday Mashup #40

Strangely it's my birthday this week as, as well as 2 of my friends, so making this birthday card was very timely. I'm going to have to make a couple more, but this is a start.
The challenge with the Friday Mashup here is not only to make a birthday card, but it make it using pastels. I used Stampin Pastels with a blender pen to color the focal image.








Stamp: Crazy for Cupcakes
Inks: Black stazon, Stampin Pastels
Papers: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Fabulous Florets Designer Paper
Accessories: Square Lattice embossing folder, Liquid applique, rhinestones, dazzling details, 5/8" White Grosgrain ribbon, Tasteful Trim die

Is the liquid applique what gives the cupcake frosting it's texture? That's very neat! Thanks for sharing!

I have also used the liquid applique but have used my last drop. I have went to JOAnns to find more and they no longer carry it and tried online but cannot find it. Do you know where I can purchase it? E-Mail me at kejm2000@yahoo.com Kathleem Miller. I have used it on my stampin up cupcakes many times.
