Birthday Cupcake

Hello, hope everyone is having a great week so far.
One of the places I like to play along when I can is
Tuesday Morning sketches.  Today I have a card to share using
the sketch this week.

Here is the card I created.
 This card opens in the center but stuck it closed to take the picture. 
When I put the card together I accidentally put my pattern paper on the wrong
side from what I originally intended :/  but had to go with it anyways.
The pattern paper is from DCWV Sweet Stack.  The left-hand panel I embossed then covered it with a piece of what is left after they cut out
the sequin, I know it has a name but I can't remember it.
The center square I cut using my Explore and them embossed it with 
the Cuttlebug folder Happy Birthday.   The center circle I cut using a 
Gina Marie stitched die and then stuck the rhinestone cupcake from Basic Grey that I have had forever.   I actually designed this card around it
so I would finally use it.

Now onto the birthday wishes stamp in the corner.........did I 
ever tell you how much I LOVE my MISTI!
And for a couple reason regarding this stamp.
This is a CTMH stamp that corresponds with a Cricut cut from
the Artiste cartridge.  Sometimes it is a  struggle to get the stamp lined 
up perfectly with the cutout, using the MISTI makes it so easy.  Let's see if I can
explain this.  I used my Explore to cut out the piece to the correct size,
then I placed the negative part from the cut out into my MISTI and lined up the 
stamp in that negative area, closed the lid and picked up the stamp.  I placed the cut out back into the negative stamp and stamped it!  Perfectly aligned.
You know how hard it is sometimes to get a perfect impression with 
the solid stamps like this one is.  Well using the MISTI that is no problem
because it stamps in the exact same spot everytime.  I think I inked this one up 3 times to get a nice even solid stamp.  Pretty cool huh?

I know it is late in the game but they are giving away a new
Mini-MISTI each day in May so you have a few days left to enter.
Head on over and see if you can win one.  Check it out
If you really want to see how this thing works there are
many videos on the tips and tricks of using it on YouTube.
