Happy Cupcake Day

What holiday would you create if you could?  Well, March 26 is "Make Your Own Holiday" day and I've decided that it will be Cupcake Day!  There's something about cupcakes that just make us all happy.  They remind us of birthdays and past celebrations ... and of course, cupcakes are the rage for the gourmet sweet tooth these days!  I have some Little Yellow Bicycle paper that I've been saving for a while and I thought this would be the perfect occasion to use it to create some cupcake card goodness!

I'm not sure what flavor my cupcake is but I love violet and pink together and the sentiment "Seize the Cupcake" seems quite fitting for my newly created holiday! 

The button I used had huge holes so I added two colors of hemp thread instead of one.  And check out the lacey circle diecut from Spellbinders - I'm so in love with it!
