Happy Birthday Smoosh

Hi Stampers!! I finally broke out my Spectrum pads to do a technique I haven't tried before - Cuttlebug Smoosh! When I took the photo, the super light band is not as glaring as it is in the photo, but the flash really made it bright. Anyway, I also used some scraps for this card, too . The white layer was a scrap, the pink sunburst (actually it's the flower from Amazing [SU! set], can you believe it?)! Another unique feature to this card is that it uses two stamp sets you wouldn't think to put together, and it also uses them in ways you wouldn't expect.

I used this glue pad to stamp the flower and apply dazzling diamonds glitter to make the cupcake really pop. I had purchased this Martha Stewart glue pad a couple of weeks ago, and I was initially excited about the fact that it came with a glue refill, and then I noticed that the glue pad was dry to begin with, and the glue is super wet.... it was odd. I have the Palette glue pad and like it much better, but I don't know where to get refills. Hmm. So anyone that knows, please post a comment and let me know, kay? lol Okay, okay, so here's the card:
Sets: Sock Monkey, Amazing
Colors: Pink Passion, Black
Other: Happy Birthday CB folder, glue pad, dazzling diamonds, black grosgrain, pink gingham ribbon (non SU!), Spectrum pad in Parfait, dimensionals, sponge brayer

I really love your card. To stop the glare you might want to shut off your flash before takign photos. Sound odd, but it really works.

Great idea about using the "flower" stamp as a burst, looks fantastic. Perfect for the background.
