Hey Sweet Cakes! {PP77}

Hiya friends, it's Paper Players! It seems like the Players have been away forever but it sure was nice to have a break!  So, we're back for 2012 with a theme challenge from the Lovely Lesley:
No time like the present to get started on those Valentine's Day cards, right?  With so many fun new stamps in the Occasions Mini Catalog, I couldn't resist a Valentine with the Sweet Cake set:
I paired Sweet Cake with the coordinating Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Paper and the colors of Calypso Coral, Pool Party with a dash of Soft Suede.  I stamped the cupcake image three times in each color and fussy-cut the dollop of Calypso Coral frosting and the Soft Suede cupcake liner.  Of course, I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the frosting for a little extra sparkle!
Did you notice those sweet little embossed hearts on the Calypso Coral cardstock?  That's the new Adorning Accents embossing folders.  There are three in a pack and at just an inch wide they are perfect for small areas.
So sweet that I had to add a few more to the inside with another sentiment from Sweet Cake overstamped on the heart of hearts from P.S. I Love You.
I hope you like today's Sweet Cake card and I would love to know what you think!  Be sure to check out the rest of the inspiring creations from The Paper Players Design Team:
