Digital Tuesday Challenge #14 ---- Sweet Birthdays

Hello and happy tuesday. Hope you are having a wonderful day!
We have another fun challenge over at the Digital Tuesday challenge blog. This week it is Paula's turn to host the challenge and she chose "Sweet Birthdays" as the theme. Use anything sweet with a birthday theme (cupcake image, decorated for birthday candy bar wrapper - Anything sweet goes)

This challenge was a great reason for me to buy the cupcake monkey images from Dustin Pike. They are just so cute! This was my first time making a stair step card, after seeing Paula's and Anjou's stair step cards a few challenges ago. You can see those gorgeous cards here using My Grafico Images (who is sponsoring the challenge this week). I knew I wanted to try it. I found directions here on SCS. Very simple to make, I am sure I'll be using this fold again and again.
Images were colored with copics and cut out. I adhered them to very vanilla circles. The sentiments are all computer generated. The designer papers are by SU (tempting turquoise prints and au chocolate). I added a little bit of stickles to the sprinkles and cherries.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I hope you get a chance to create something "sweet" for this challenge. And don't forget, the sponsor this week is My Grafico. They are giving away one of their digi-sets. They have some really gorgeous sets to choose from.
