Got Cupcake? Goat Bday Card

Created this whimsy birthday card using mostly Simon Says Stamp items. 

Used SSS stamp/die Birthday Farm Animals, SSS Stitched Rectangle to place the Goat on so I could put a wobble on the back of it and SSS die for sentiment tag. 

Paper pieced the cupcake using Kraft cardstock colored with a brown Crayola marker & Wink of Stella pens. 

Stamped SSS sentiment. Cut out the sentiment with SSS die.
Added a wobble. Added 2 white with touch of gray buttons. Added twine to the buttons. Added ribbon to the sentiment tag.
