Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

Hi Everyone :-) I have been feeling a bit guilty lately as I have been meaning to enter this challenge from the begining but due to having my friend to stay and my holiday home to the UK I just didn't find the time, better late than never though eh !! :-)
The theme this week on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge
is 'Mum's the word' as we have already had Mothers Day in the UK I decided to make a birthday/ celebration one instead :-)
The image is from Simon Says Stamp store and is the Simon Says Clear Stamps, Savour Sweet Cupcakes set. I coloured it with copics, 3D'd the icing and added a little crystal stickles. I didn't want to add to much shimmer as the paper is shimmery enough !! I also added a flower that I stamped using pink brilliance ink and some Robin's nest dew drops :-)
I also decorated the inside using a Funky Fairy's Papercrafts download and the text is from the same Simon says Exclusive clear stamps set :-) The entrance ticket was a free stamp from the Craft Stamper magazine, I masked the words and wrote my own :-)
The papers are DCWV glitter sweet stack and Funky Fairy's Papercrafts, the ribbon is by Martha Stewart, the text frame was hodgepodge hardware from SU. The text is from the Funky Fairy's Papercrafts download, 'Birthday Rounds'

Thanks for looking and I really do appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
There is still a few days left to enter my blog candy so please have a look, it's at the top of my blog.

This post has been edited. I wasn't happy with the card as it was so changed it a bit :-) I flew back to Malta on a jet plane but think my mojo came by slow balloon :-) Think I've got it back now tho !!
