From Complicated and time consuming to simple and easy.

This is made with the DCWV THE SWEET STACK and vellum from Paper and More center flower cut with Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge,Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Pendant Shapeabilities, Spellbinders Deckled Mega Rectangles Nestabilities, small flower punched with Stampin Up punch, thank you from Stampin Up and satin ribbon.
More of the DCWV THE SWEET STACK card stock, vellum Happy Birthday printed on the computer, Princess does not show up well, but the word is made of rhinestones. Balloons made with Cricut Walk in my Garden, the crowns were made with the Sizzix embossing plate on Core'dinations card stock that I cut and sanded, then added glitter to the centers.
This cupcake was made by using my Cricut Walk in my Garden, the flower pot, I used a corner rounder on the bottom edges. The circles were punched with an EK Success punch, I used the Souffle pens to add the sprinkles. The card stock is from DCWV The Sweet Stack .
More DCWV Sweet Stack card stock and a ribbon.
So I went from complicated and time consuming to very simple and easy in these cards. I hope you enjoy, thanks for looking. ~Diane

    Your cards are really lovely.
    I have to say that the first one is my very favourite one. I love how you use the Spellbinders pendants. Great idea puttin the flower in the middle of it like that. Very inspiring.
