Patty Bennett sent me this amazing My Digital Studio (MDS) card for my birthday.  Since I really don't do anything with MDS other than house it in my computer at this point, I decided to try to convert it to a regular stamping project.

So here is the fabulous card that Patty sent to me. I love it and would copy it exactly if i could.


Since I can't copy it exactly, I remade it with actual stamping and punching.

Here is the first step.  I used the 2"x 1 3/8" Oval Punch (page 202) to punch out the bottom of the cupcake table.  I cut a 1/4" stem for the table and then ran this white card stock through the Big Shot with the Tulip Border Embossing Folder.


Then I stamped the saying at the top in black and added the rest of the punched out pieces.

 I'll put the Happy Birthday greeting inside the card. I would have loved to have been able to add the little ribbons to each  black striped cupcake base, but I couldn't figure out how to do that.

Here is what i came up with. Since whoever I will send this card to will not have seen the original, I think that they will like it alot!  My March Stamp Clubs are making this card.


Thanks again for the great idea, Patty!
