June Guest Designer- Samantha

Here is my card for this release set.
I had a lot of fun with this one, who doesn't like a cupcake birthday set? Do you see the little cake images marching along in a row? They make such a great border to accent the main image or sentiment!
I also hoped to find the time to try an explosion box with this set, it just seemed like a natural. I used the mini line of cupcakes and cake on the outside edge of each side of the cover and propped up an image of the smaller cupcake on the box top as well. When you open the box, there is a balloon spiral attached to the box base and lid. Its supposed to be like a birthday explosion inside the box. I don't know, both older daughters laughed when I showed it to them! I stamped the two different sized balloons from the set on different color cardstock in silver and cut them out, also using two of the set sentiments on the box interior.
If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, visit Samantha, who is at the top of the list above. If you've already been hopping, you would have arrived from Debbie Seyer's blog and your next stop after this one will be Faith! Good luck and happy hopping!
