Bitten by the Bug and my Birthday Girl!

This is the card I created for this week's Bitten by the Bug Challenge. We were to use the Cocoa Cup on the Christmas Cheer cartridge. I inked the edges white and liquid appliqued my steam and marshmallows. (Those were punched with a small square punch, and by hand I rounded the corners with scissors). I stamped the sentiment using Karen Foster's Snap Stamps and punched out. I adhered it to the handle of the cup with a ribbon. The DP is by My Mind's Eye. The rest of the paper is SU! I cuttlebugged the blue paper. The Kraft paper was punched using Martha Stewart's new border punch. I added some ribbon by Making Memories to finish it off.
Aren't my marshmallows yummy?
Here is Cortney getting ready to blow out her candles with her dad. I love that I captured this sweet moment!
