I have used a cupcake themed paper from a paper pad by Provocraft.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is coloured with copic markers.  I matted this onto some deep red cardstock which I scored top and bottom. I added a sentiment from Peppercus Designs cut into a pennant shape.

Birthday Wishes

I've had a couple of quieter days as I thought I was coming down with a cold - turns out it is hayfever.  I thought it was a bit early in the year for that but apparently not!  Since I took some medication for it earlier today I've felt a bit more like doing some crafting.
