Melon Limeade Cupcake {PP99}

Hi there friends...it's Sunday and you know what that means...The Paper Players!  It's our fearless leader Lesley's turn to host and she has a gorgeous color combination for us:
I paired these colors with my friend Linda's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:
To make this bright and happy birthday card:
 We've been having a lot of rain here in the "sunshine" state so I apologize for the poor lighting.  Not much natural light today!  I think this card is pretty straightforward so I won't go into a lot of detail and you'll have the whole supply list at the bottom.  You might want to see a close-up of the cupcake:
The cupcake and cake stand, from Easy Events, were colored with a Blender Pen and stampin' write markers in Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade and Basic Gray.  I stamped the cupcake frosting a second time, added some dazzling diamonds and popped up the frosting.  The silver glimmer hearts were punched with the Heart to Heart and Owl Builder punches.
And a quick look at the clean and simple inside featuring sentiments and cupcakes from the Create a Cupcake stamp set.  I'm still waiting on my first box of goodies from the new catalog so for now, I'm using oldies-but-goodies!  Whether you've got new stamps or not, we would love to have you join Lesley's color challenge this week!  Be sure to check out the rest of the lovely ladies on the Design Team:
